Constitution 

(Revised 1964) 



Name 

Article i. This body shall be known as the Yates Baptist Association of North 
Carolina. 

Membership 

Article 2. The Association in session shall be composed of the duly elected mes- 
sengers from the cooperating Baptist Churches in Durham County and its adjacent 
territory, the regularly elected officers of the Association, and the members of the Asso- 
ciational Board. 

Article 3. Each church shall be represented at the annual meeting of the Asso- 
ciation and at any special meeting during the year by messengers who shall be duly 
certified, and in the following ratio: 

(1) Three for the first hundred members or fraction thereof and one for each addi- 
tional hundred or fraction thereof, provided that the total number of messengers 
shall not exceed ten. 

(2) All pastors of churches of the Association shall be recognized as messengers, in 
addition to those specified above. 

Article 4. Churches seeking to seat messengers in the Association shall apply to the 
Extension Committee prior to the annual meeting of the Association, giving evidence 
of their faith and order and their agreement to be received under the watchcare of 
the Association. Upon recommendation of the committee and the approval of the 
Association by a two-thirds majority of the members present and voting, the church or 
churches shall be received under the watchcare of the Association for a period of one 
year. It is understood that during the period of watchcare such churches will be 
accorded all the services of the Association and all its privileges with the exception of 
the right to seat voting messengers and to voting representation on the Associational 
Board. At the end of the year of watchcare, the church or churches may, by a two-thirds 
vote of the Association, be received into full fellowship of the Association or continued 
under watchcare or have the reqncst for fellowship rejected. Upon admission to full fel- 
lowship, the church or churches shall be authorized to seat duly elected messengers with 
voting privileges and voting members on the Associational Board. 

Artile 5. The Association shall have power, upon giving notice of nine months 
and by two-thirds majority vote of messengers present and voting, to withdraw fellow- 
ship from any church that shall willfully depart from orthodox principles of the 
Christian religion as taught in the Bible and as believed by Baptist, or that fails to 
represent itself either by messenger or by letter at the annual session of the Association 
without sufficient reason, or that fails to support causes fostered by the denomination at 
large and of this Association in particular, or that ceases to be missionary in practice. 

Article 6. Any church may decline to send messengers to the Association at its 
pleasure. Whenever this constitutes a withdrawal of fellowship on the part of the 



Yates Baptist Assoqation 



19 



church, the Association shall not as a body, or through a representative or representatives, 
seek to restrain by coercion or law the withdrawal action of the church. 

Purpose 

Article 7. The purpose of the Association shall be to devise, recommend, and 
promote measures for increasing the harmony and spiritual power of the cooperating 
churches, to assist in developing and directing their energies, resources and gifts in ad- 
vancing the Redeemer's Kingdom, and to cooperate with the Baptist State Convention 
of North Carolina and the Southern Baptist Convention in all religious, educational, 
missionary, Sunday School, Training Union, Brotherhood, Music, Woman's Missionary 
Union Auxiliary and other work fostered by said conventions. 

Powers and Prerogatives 

Article 8. The Association, when convened in meeting, shall sit as advisory coun- 
cil, and shall have no power to infringe on any of the internal rights of the churches j 
it may advise with the cooperating churches and recommend measures of usefulness for 
their adoption, and may claim for itself, its objects, and its recommendations the highest 
consideration. 

Annual Reports of the Churches 

Article 9. Each cooperating church shall send annually to the Association a report 
on the Associational Letter which is provided. Said report should reach the Associational 
Clerk at least ten days prior to the annual meeting. 

Meetings 

Article io. The Association shall convene annually on Tuesday and Wednesday 
after the fourth Sunday in October, and may meet with different churches on the two 
successive days. 

Article ii. The time of the annual meeting may be changed, or special meetings

of the Durham Baptist Council, a new church of twenty-nine members was organized. 
The Barfield Center was secured as a temporary meeting place, and on subsequent Sunday 
afternoons, the name Park View was chosen, and a pastor. The Rev. T. A. Lineberger 
was called by the church. On September 14, 1952, a departmental Sunday School was 
organized, with Training Union, W.M.U., and Brotherhood organizations following 
soon after. Church membership had grown to seventy-three by the time the charter roll 
was closed. Sunday School classes and departments met in various places for several 
months. These places included Barfield Community Center, The State Highway Office 
Building, the parsonage, and homes of some of the church members. 

Through the Bapist Council, a building site was secured on Club Blvd., but when 
the fall rains came, this site was flooded and a new one on Acadia at Ellerbee Streets 
was chosen. The Rev. Mr. Lineberger resigned to accept a call to the Macedonia 
Baptist Church in Kings Mountain on July 4, 1954. 

In October, 1954, the first unit in the building program was begun, and was dedi- 
cated on July 5, 1955. The Rev. John A. Moore became pastor of the church on 
December i, 1954, and served until June 2, 1957. Dr. J. Carroll Trotter, a professor 
at the Southeastern Seminary was the church's interim pastor until January 5, 1958, 
when the Rev. B. E. White, Jr. became pastor. 

The Children's Building was added as a second unit in the building program in 1959. 
The second floor was left unfinished, and gradually, for the next five years, the present 
facilities were added. An organ was placed in the sanctuary in i960. The parsonage 
at 2513 Wilbon Street was purchased in February, 1962. The Church celebrated 
its tenth anniversary on July 29, 1962, by launching a building fund for a new 
sanctuary on which it hopes to begin construction soon. Present church membership 
is 438. 

HISTORY OF WESTWOOD BAPTIST CHURCH 

In 1950 the Baptist Council of Churches of Durham recognized the need for a 
Baptist Church in the Watts Hospital area, and a lot on the corner of Maryland 
Avenue and Woodrow Street was purchased by the Council as a new church site. 

In July 1950 revival services were held in the Clyde Kelly Chapel, now Clements 
Chapel J and, on August 13, 1950, the Maryland Avenue Baptist Church was formally 
organized. There were 61 members at the organizational meeting, but charter-member 
privileges were extended until the first Sunday in September, when the charter member- 
ship was closed with 83 members. Rev. George Shore, a student at Duke University, 
was called as temporary pastor. 

Early in 195 1 the church recognized the need for a full-time pastor; and, on March 
25, Rev. Robert L. Costner of Knightdale, North Carolina, was called as pastor. In 



34 



Eighteenth Annual Session 



April 1951 the Unified Budget System was adopted, and the church celebrated its first 
anniversary with a membership of 96. In September 195 1 a parsonage, located at 
1008 Broad Street, was purchased. 

The Church Planning Committee recognized the inadequacy of the Maryland 
Avenue site for future growth. That property was sold, and, on February 23, 1952, 
property at the corner of Carolina Avenue and Club Boulevard was purchased. The 
residence on this property was renovated for use as a sanctuary and quarters for the 
Sunday School. The congregation moved from the Clyde Kelly Chapel on April 13, 
1952, and the name of the church was changed to Westwood. 

By November 6, 1955, the church debt had been liquidated, and the Planning and 
Building Committees made plans for construction of the first educational unit of the 
permanent church home. Ground-breaking ceremonies were held on April 8, 1956, and 
dedicatory services were held in the new building on May 19, 1957. At this time 
there were 272 members on the church roll. 

On November 3, 1957, the church regretfully accepted the resignation of Rev. 
Costner, under whose inspiring leadership the rapid, dynamic, and spiritually solid 
growth of the church had been attained. Dr. Denton Coker of the Southeastern Baptist 
Theological Seminary served as interim pastor for the next six months. 

The church called as its second pastor, on June i, 1958, Rev. Hugh Ross Williams. 
During his ministry, the Music Department came to be recognized as a vital part of 
the church ministry, and} at the time of his resignation, in September i960, the church 
had grown to a membership of 320. Dr. Van Murrell, who is presently on the faculty 
of Campbell College, and Dr. John Freeman, of Duke University, served as interim 
pastors until October i, 1961, when Rev. Wyatt Coley accepted the call as third pastor 
of the church. An additional lot on Carolina Avenue was purchased on October 8, 
1963, to provide additional parking facilities. Rev. Coley submitted his resignation 
on August 22, 1965, at which time membership stood at 368. Dr. John Freeman was 
again called, on September 12, 1965, to serve as interim pastor. 

On June 15, 1966, a new parsonage, at 2024 Woodrow Street, was purchased} and 
Rev. Rudolph Pulley, the present pastor, accepted the church's call on June 26, 1966. 
Present membership is 347. 

REPORT OF THE EVANGELISM COMMITTEE 

This seems to be the age of rebellion. People everywhere are rebelling against 
constituted authority. Rioting mobs cover the streets at night in our larger cities, firing 
guns at random and throwing fire bombs with precision. Lawlessness seems to be the 
order of the day. Man is bewildered and doped with despair. He searches for the 
answer but it seems to elude him. 

Do we have the answer? We can positively say we do have the answer. God's 
answer is in New Testament churches, preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, preaching 
both by precept and by example. We must become living epistles, demonstrating Christ's 
love and power through the working of the Holy Spirit. 

God's answer to the critics and persecutors of the Church has been the hot and 
holy fires of revival. From Pentecost to the last real revival in the local church, God's 
answer has been conclusive and complete. 

Southern Baptist's attention is directed to the Crusade of the Americas in 1969. 
Twenty-one countries are cooperating in the crusade. We must get ready. Our God 



Yates Baptist Assoqation 



35 



is a God of planning and purpose. Now is the time to get every church committed to 
the crusade for 1969. 

We shall continue with our calendar of evangelism month by month, including our 
annual simultaneous, individual church, and area revivals. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Malbert Smith, Jr., Chairman 



REPORT OF FOUNDATION COMMITTEE 

The Foundation Committee has had no further meetings since the report of April 
2 1, 1966 pending appointment by the individual churches of a representative of the 
Foundation Committee; that the chairman of the committee together with Mr. Mum- 
ford are preparing a folder and letter to present to each of the churches for their 
guidance in the appointing of a representative to work with the Foundation Committee j 
that the Committee proposes to proceed along the following lines: 

1. Prepare folders to be supplied to each of the churches to guide them in the 
appointing of a Foundation Committee representative from the church. 

2. Hold a committee meeting with a dinner and invite all representatives to the 
meeting for the purpose of outlining to them an educational program of bringing 
to the attention of each church member the services available to them through 
the North Carolina Baptist Foundation. 

3. To furnish them at said time with a suggested step by step guideline to guide 
them in their work. 

4. Have an attorney address the gathering concerning the legal aspects involved and 
to be available for open discussion of any questions which any individual founda- 
tion representative might wish to take up. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Lester W. Owen, Chairman

REPORT OF EXTENSION COMMITTEE 

In trying to carry out the Constitutional responsibilities and the Command of 
Christ to preach the gospel, your Extension Committee has been working in the fol~ 
lowing major projects during the past year: 

1. At our January meeting through the courtesy of Fred Herndon, we made a 
detailed study of projected growth and expansion of our area. Slides were used 
showing the conditions in 1963 and anticipated changes through 1980. The study 
revealed several areas where we should purchase future sites for missions and 
churches. We must have funds as well as foresight to purchase property while the 
land is still available and the price is reasonable. Mr. Herndon discussed the above with 
the full Board on January 11, at the Hope Valley Church. 

2. At the instruction of the Board, your Committee brought a report to the 
January 11 meeting on the status of Binkley Memorial Church, and the report was 
approved. 

3. Last year we reported that the Carrboro Baptist Church had agreed to sponsor 
the mission north of Chapel Hill. They have now elected the Mission Committee com- 
posed of John Hoenig, Chairman, Wiley Franklin, James Blake, and Sidney Barker. 
Your Committee has made every effort to secure an option on suitable property and have 
had assistance of realtors. However, we regret to report this has been without success. 
Consideration has been given to renting temporary quarters, but we have not found 
anything that we could recommend. 

4. The Day Nursery and Kindergarten work in the Few Gardens area sponsored by 
the Edgemont Baptist Church was this year assisted by the association and the State 
Convention. Great progress has been made in reaching children and their families. 

5. The Roberson Grove Baptist Church has voted to withdraw from the Yates 
Association feeling that it would be best for the church and the association. 

6. The association requested and received from the State Convention $1800 for 
pastor's supplement for Parkwood. 

7. Some areas that the Committee feels should have future attention are: Old Chapel 
Hill Road J Willowhaven Development areaj South of Chapel Hill/ Carrboro 5 and pos- 
sibly the Old Oxford Road.

REPORT OF ANNUITY BOARD 

Today, more than 16,660 churches in the Southern Baptist Convention are providing- 
protection to staff members through the Protection Plan. Nearly 11,000 of these churches 
are paying- the 10% dues. More than 28,000 staff members are participating. 

There are 7 states with 70% or more of the churches in the Program. In con- 
trast. North Carolina has only 48% of the churches participating. In Yates Association 
/fo or 8^% of the churches are fartici fating. 

Since 1918 almost $51 million has been paid out in benefits. In 1965 alone, almost 
$4 million was paid in age retirement, disability or widow benefits. 

Churches with pastors participating may also join the Health Benefit Plan. This is 
an all-inclusive program of hospital, surgical and major medical benefits. Enrollment 
has already reached over 10,000. 

The Rev. Guy S. Cain, 301 Hillsboro Street, Raleigh, is Secretary of Retirement 
Plans and jointly employed by the Annuity Board and our Baptist State Convention. 

Respectfully submitted, 
C. M. Hight, Chairman 

REPORT OF THE JEWISH NEIGHBORS COMMITTEE 

The work of this committee remains to be rather slight within our Yates Associa- 
tion; however, we do believe that some headway is being made, and that His Word will 
not return unto Him void. We believe the words are "PERSEVERANCE" and 
"PERSISTENCE." 

On February 28, 1966, a State Jewish Neighbors Seminar was held at the Lake- 
wood Baptist Church, Durham, N. C. from 9:30 A.M. until 4:30 P.M., and associations 
from Mecklenburg to the coast were invited to attend. For this seminar we were 
privileged to have as our special guests: Rev. Jase Jones, Kansas City Baptist Association, 
Jewish Evangelism Department, Rev. William Mitchell, Home Mission Board, South- 
ern Baptist Convention, Rev. Lloyd Whyte, Miami City Missions to Jewish peoples, and 
Rev. Ernest C. Upchurch, Secretary of Church Development Department of our North 
Carolina Baptist State Convention. 

In the evening of this same day, there was a committee meeting at Balentine's 
Restaurant at 6:00 P.M. and our own Associational Workshop at 7:30 P.M. 

On August 16, 1966, at 7:30 P.M., we presented a film, "Let My People Go," a 
documentary film of hate and prejudice and persecutions of the Jewish people. This 
film was presented earlier in the year by medium of television, and it was through the 
generosity of the film company that produced it that we were able to make it available 
to those who had not seen it. 

Pray for this committee. Support this committee. Do what you can to witness 
in your humble way to these, our Jewish friends. If Christ means anything to you, 
share Him with your friends, especially to those who know Him not. 

Respectfully submitted, 
John C. Grant, Chairman

REPORT OF THE GAMP COMMITTEE 

Yates Baptist Camp is steadily moving- forward. We have really g-one over the 
hump in the use of it and are now moving- on toward the top. Interest is growing. 
More and more churches are finding the facilities ideally suited to the needs and pur- 
poses of many of their groups. Twenty-two of our churches have had groups use the 
grounds and facilities during the past year. Individuals using the grounds approach 
4,000. 

One needs to see the grounds in order to appreciate what has been accomplished this 
year. The list of improvements is a long one. Many people have done much work. 
We are especially indebted to our Superintendent of Missions (whose interest and ac- 
complishments are unequaled), and to our Superintendent of Grounds in carrying out 
their responsibilities in a most commendable way. 

Development of the camp is limited only by the amount of money we have to work 
with and the help that the committee can obtain from other interested persons. The 
future is bright and promising-. 

We were not successful in our attempts to conductj a resident camp this year. We 
feel certain that our new committee will use the experiences we had in this area to 
advantage and succeed in having several resident camps this coming year. Then we will 
see Our Lord using these facilities to an even greater degree in shaping and molding* 
lives in His way. 

We invite and urge the churches to use the camp. It exists for the churches of the 
Yates Association. The facilities may be reserved through the Associational office. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Russell Barbee, Chairman 

REPORT OF MUSIC COUNCIL 

The Music Council met five times during the past season in executive meetings to 
plan the work of the group for the season. There was good attendance of council 
members at all of these. 

A choir was used for the opening of each session (Tuesday morning, Tuesday 
afternoon, and Wednesday morning) of the 1965 Annual Associational meeting in 
October. It is planned to have such an associational choir again for this year's associa- 
tional meeting. 

"M" night was postponed from December 6 to December 13. There was an 
associational choir rehearsing the two Sunday afternoons preceding the service, and 
singing selected numbers from Handel's "Messiah." Attendance in this choir was 
small, however, at least partly due to the change in date. 

Ernest Byrd, a council member, led an associational male chorus for the Brother- 
hood Ladies' Night January 18, 1966. Two rehearsals were held prior to the meet- 
ing. This group was very well received by those present. 

The annual associational choral clinic was held Monday, February 21, at Grace 
Baptist Church, with Paul Peterson leading it. This was very successful. Over 100 
singers and music leaders from over 20 churches attended this session. 

An area choral clinic was held on Monday, March 14, at Lystra Baptist Church. 
This had an attendance of 35, but mostly from 2 churches, Lystra and Mt. Gilead. 
This included 5 council members and 3 other choir directors. 



40 



Eighteenth Annual Session 



On Sunday afternoon, May 15, at 3 P.M. the annual associational Hymn Sing- was 
held at Olive Branch Baptist Church. Favorite hymns were used, determined by a poll 
taken from the congreg-ation. Several choirs participated, a.nd the church was just 
about filled. This was a most successful festival, as attested to by many of the 
members of the congregation who expressed themselves. 

At the request of Carrboro Baptist Church, conducting classes were led in that 
church by two council members, Leonard Smith and John Laverty. Leonard Smith led 
these classes on June 13 and 20, and John Laverty on June 21. Several church members 
interested in choir leading and song leading attended these sessions. 

Respectfully submitted, 
John T. Laverty, Director 



REPORT ON BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

It is almost superfluous to say that the kind of medical care provided by our 
Hospital is very expensive, and the Hospital has no choice but to ask full payment 
of all who can pay. The Hospital has been spending in free care for our people far 
more than it receives from our Mother's Day Offerings, the Cooperative Program, and 
all welfare agencies combined. This has caused the Hospital to run into debt during 
the past two years and the same has been happening this year. Of course, the Hospital 
simply cannot continue to operate this way. Medicare is not going to change this 
situation greatly! Our people need to understand this and recognize that we are 
going to have to provide much greater support if the Hospital is to continue to provide 
free service in the same measure for those who cannot pay for it. 

While some of our churches support the Hospital well indeed, most of them could 
do far more than they have been doing. We want to bring- this to your attention, 
asking you to go back to your church and give this information to your people and 
help to lead them to give serious consideration to the Hospital's vital ministry and 
its urgent need. 

Observe the following statistics: In 1965 we had 19,364 patients and from 30 
to 40 per cent of patients were unable to pay full cost of care. The cost of bed 
patients per day is $39.69 for the entire Hospital. In 1955 the cost of free service was 
$455,000. In 1965 the cost of free service was $1,293,000. Our offering in 1955 was 
$193,000 which was forty-two per cent of cost. Our offering in 1965 was $267,000 
which was twenty per cent of cost. 

In order to do our share in Yates Association, we have divided our churches into 
9 groups with a Captain for each group. We are grateful for these leaders who have 
helped to make possible our increase this year. This year, forty-two of our forty- 
seven churches contributed to our Mother's Day Offering, giving a total of $5,900.65. 
This is good! We are suggesting strongly that each church consider raising this 
offering by ten per cent this next year, whether in the budget or Special Offering. 

Respectfully submitted, 
J. B. Cash, 

Hospital Representative

REPORT OF THE CHRISTIAN LIFE COMMITTEE 



Introduction 



The Constitution of the Yates Baptist Association states that the duty of the 
Christian Life Committee shall be "to recommend ways in w^hich the Association can 
work for the promotion of civic righteousness and social uplift." T/ie Associational 
Christian Life Committee Guidebook says, "The Committee's task involves both a 
program of education and of Christian social action. It should strive to educate 
Baptists in the association on the claims of the gospel in their daily lives. It should 
also initiate or cooperate with efforts to lift the life of the community to the standards 
of God in Christ." 

It is in the spirit of these injunctions that the Christian Life Committee for 1965-66 
has undertaken its work. After evaluating the work of the prior year's Committee and, 
in particular, the Christian Life Conference which was held on November 2, 1965, at 
Yates Baptist Church, the Committee concluded that the Conference was a worthwhile 
first effort and that another Conference should be held in 1966. Plans have been com- 
pleted for the conference to be held at University Baptist Church, Chapel Hill, N. C, 
on Thursday night, November 3, beginning at 7:00 P.M. The theme will be "A 
Church's Mission and the Problems of Poverty." 

An outstanding feature of this year's Christian Life Conference will be the partici- 
pation and co-sponsorship with Yates Baptist Association of two other Baptist associa- 
tions^ — East Cedar Grove and New Hope. Most of the Negro Baptist churches in the 
immediate vicinity of Yates Association belong to one of these associations. Repre- 
sentatives from our three associations have worked together during this year in a fine 
spirit of fellowship and cooperation vt planning for the conference. 

Why the Theme "A Church's Mission and the Problems of Poverty"? 

Those of us who call ourselves Christian cannot allow ourselves to remain insensitive 
to the presence of large numbers of persons in our local communities and throughout our 
land who are proverty stricken even in the midst of great affluence. It is a fact that 
many of us are comfortably sheltered from the poor whether intentionally or not. 
Indeed it seems very evident that the poorest among our people do not attend any 
church nor are they often touched by our evangelistic efforts. Because of where we live 
and work we have little contact with the poor. We therefore find it difficult to be- 
lieve that poverty involves so many people in the local community. The truth is that 
25.6% of the families in Durham County were existing in 1959 on incomes of less than 



Yates Baptist AssoaATiON 



43 



$3,000 per year (Brooks, The Dimension of Poverty in 'North Carolina^ Durham, N. C, 
The North Carolina Fund, June, 1964). There is no reason to suppose that the situa- 
tion has g-reatly improved. The fact that the percentage is twice as high among" 
Neg-ro families than it is among- white families lays additional responsibility upon 
us. But, alas, even when we begin to comprehend the magnitude of the problem, 
we are very reluctant to become personally involved. 

So much has been said about poverty and the so-called war against poverty in 
recent months that many church-going citizens have "hardened their hearts" in this 
matter. The Federal government has in effect assumed primary responsibility for the 
battle with some help from local and state governments and from private foundations. 
Persons who are somewhat naturally inclined to be sympathetic toward a needy indi- 
vidual have reacted against the government programs for a variety of reasons and, 
in so doing, have lost sight of the great needs of their fellow citizens. 

The problems of freeing people from the cycle of poverty are so complex that 
it is tempting either to give up before the job is accomplished or to ignore the challenge 
altogether. Yet it is sobering to hear again the words of John's epistle: "If anyone 
has the world's goods in abundance and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart 
against him, how does God's love abide in him?" (I John 3:17 RSV). Henry Clark in 
his book. The Christian Case Against Poverty y makes "an appeal for clear thinking 
and aroused commitment based on the conviction that not only the physical welfare of 
the poor but also the spiritual welfare of the prosperous are at stake in the response 
which churchmen make to the challenge of poverty in the midst of our affluent society." 

Your Christian Life Committee feels there is no more pressing matter than for the 
Christian people of this area to engage in serious dialogue about what local churches 
in mission can do to help solve some of the problems of poverty. How can individual 
Christians and local congregations become involved in a helpful ministry to specific 
persons and families caught in the web of poverty from which they cannot extricate 
themselves? It is the purpose of the Christian Life Conference on November 3 to 
explore these problems freely and openly with specific reference to our local situation. 
In such exploration our consciences should not only be sensitized but our hearts and 
minds should be opened to some resources which might be effectively employed in a 
continuing ministry to the poor. Knowing the compassion of our Lord for the poor 
and for all persons in need, we cannot afford to pass by on the other side if we are 
to bear His name and to do His work in the world. 

Why Joint Participation by Negro and White Baptists? 

In spite of genuine progress that has been made in more effective communication 
between the races over a period of several years we as Christians are still plagued by 
racial barriers. Beyond the questions of civic and legal rights which should have equal 
application to all citizens without respect to race or color, there lie the problems of 
personal relationships between human beings. If there are those among us who bear 
hatred or distrust or fear or feelings of disgust toward another person because of his 
race or skin color, we need rather desperately to get to know that person. Many of us 
do not have opportunities to meet with persons of other races on a person-to-person 
level that would permit healthful exchange of thoughts and emotions. 

There is no more appropriate setting for such conversations to take place than in 
the church of Jesus Christ, who is the agent of our reconciliation with God and with 
one another. Furthermore, since we cannot effectively discuss the problems of poverty

Eighteenth Annual Session 



in our local communities without consideration of both the white and Negro poor, how 
unrealistic it is for Christians of the two races to discuss these matters separately but 
never together. 

In our first Christian Life Conference last year the meeting was enriched by the 
presence and participation of a number of Negro Christians from local churches. It 
was the unanimous feeling of the Committee that planning for this year's conference 
would be more effective in cooperation with representatives from the Negro Baptist 
associations in the Yates Association area. The Committee is pleased with our joint 
planning endeavors and hopes that the Conference will provide opportunities for 
meaningful personal relationships while we pursue matters of mutual Christian concern. 

Schedule for November 3 Conference 

Place: University Baptist Church, Franklin and Columbia Streets, Chapel 

Hill, N. C. 

Date: Thursday evening, November 3 

Theme: "A Church's Mission and the Problems of Poverty" 

Program Outline: 7:00 Welcome, Worship and Introduction 

7:20 Address by Dr. Samuel D. Proctor, 

Prominent Negro Minister and Educator 

7:45 Discussion groups (refreshments within groups) 

9:10 Hymn, prayer and offering 

9:20 Address by Dr. Claude U. Broach, Pastor, St. John's Baptist 

Church, Charlotte, N. C. 
9:45 Benediction 

Everyone is urged to support this Christian Life Conference by prayer, attendance 
and encouraging the attendance of others. For many people it can be an evening of 
significant Christian fellowship. The addresses of two distinguished leaders and in- 
formal discussion groups will provide opportunities for Christian growth and guidance 
for more effective Christian action in a highly complex society. Hopefully the Con- 
ference will help the local churches of this area to become more acutely aware of the 
critical nature of their influence and the need to speak and act with conviction con- 
cerning the moral and ethical issues of our time. Perhaps some churches will be en- 
couraged to hold Christian Life conferences in their own communities on questions of 
pressing Christian concern and to develop more significant programs of education and 
Christian social action in order "to lift the life of the community to the standards of 
God in Christ." 

Members of the Committee who have served this year are: Julius H. Corpening, 
Mrs. N. B. Lockwood, E. Coye Still and Henry Turlington. 

Respectfully submitted, 

V. A. Parks, Jr., Chairman 



REPORT OF THE SUNDAY SCHOOL 

Last year proved to be an outstanding year in Sunday school work in many ways. 
In the area of outreach, the Director-Led Enlargement Campaign was well received 
by participating churches and results are already in evidence. Reaching more people 
for Bible study and church membership continues to be a major task of the Sunday 
school and these large association-wide campaigns are proving especially helpful. 



Yates Baptist AssoaATioN

Training continued to receive strong- emphasis. Bill Russ of the Virginia Conven- 
tion met with pastors and ministers of education to discuss the new Leadership Train- 
ing materials published by the Sunday School Board. In a joint endeavor with 
Training Union, L. J. Newton of the Sunday School Board and our own state leader- 
ship conducted a conference at Bethesda Church on New Member Orientation, Leader- 
ship Training materials, and the Life and Work Curriculum. 

The increasing number of churches conducting Leadership Training classes is 
especially encouraging. 

Simultaneous conferences were held at Ridgecrest and Calvary churches, using both 
state and associational leadership. An action night program with age group conferences 
was held at Watts Street Baptist Church. Main emphasis was placed upon the Church 
Growth Plan. 

Two Vacation Bible School Clinics were held this year, under the very fine leader- 
ship of the Reverend Julian Motley. The first at Bells had an attendance of 75. 
The second at Edgemont had 119 present for a total of 194. 

Last year the association was challenged to reach the following goals: 

3% for 1966 
4% for 1967 
5% for 1968 
6% for 1969 
7% for 1970 

This meant a numerical goal of 588 for the past year. The Sunday schools of the 
Association reported an enrollment of 19,314 compared to 19,602 for 1965. 

We continue to feel that the churches can best be helped by going directly to them 
when they ask for assistance. Thus we will continue to seek ways to communicate 
with church leadership in determining needs and how we can help meet them. 

Respectfully submitted. 
Earl Long, Superintendent

REPORT ON HOMES FOR AGING 

During the past year our N. C. Homes for the Aging have served 172 aging 
people. 170 others have remained on the waiting list. 85% of our aging residents have 
benefited directly from the offerings from our churches. 

We are so thankful to learn that the special offerings this year have shown a 5% 



Yates Baptist Assoqation 



47 



increase over 1964-65. The special offering- may reach $100,000 for the first time. 
Yet costs have advanced 7% which still leaves us 2% in the red. 

During- the past twelve months there have been fewer deaths and several of the 
critically ill have been brought back to a measure of reasonably good health. Nursing 
care has been of the highest quality. The first resident to receive a Medicare card 
was the oldest resident, 105-year-old Aunt Fannie Drumwrig-ht, who never takes any 
medication or needs to see a doctor. 

Construction on our fifth Home at Yanceyville will begin next year. This should 
relieve the pressure of a long waiting- list. 

Respectfully submitted, 

R. T. Howerton, Representative 

REPORT OF AUDIO-VISUAL AIDS COMMITTEE 

Your Audio-Visual Aids Committee, although not too active, has completed several 
projects started in 1964-65. 

We held two workshops on the use of visual aids in the church — one at Park View 
and one at Homestead Heights with few in attendance. Of course this was very 
discouraging to the committee, but it may be that our individual churches are so 
up to date in their use that they did not feel the need for such instructions. The 
committee would like to encourage the churches to have their own workshops to pre- 
sent to the new officers the uses of visual aids in all of the organizations of the church. 

The committee would like to compliment our Superintendent of Missions for the 
fine job he has been doing with the new Polaroid camera, bring-ing in picture form 
reports of various associational meetings in the NEWS Bulletin, and we also express a 
big thank-you to Mrs. Emily Warren for doing such a wonderful job bringing the 
Audio- Visual Aids Catalog up to date with the latest supplementary sheets. 

The association's audio visual library has continued to g-row through the past 
year with the purchases of 15 new filmstrips, 10 slide sets, 10 disc recordings, 10 tape 
recordings, and 2 flip charts. 

The library has been as popular this year as in the past with most of the churches 
in the association taking advantage of the resources there for their use. 

The committee is now in the process of arranging a conference with the Audio 
Visual sales consultant from Broadman Films. Mr. James Wm. Coleman, of Broadman 
Films, will be in the Association Office on November i, 1966 between the hours of 2:00 
and 5 :oo p.m. to talk with all who are interested in the CAVE plan or those who are 
already in the plan who may have questions about it. 

The committee is very happy with the new space in the association's new office and 
feel that this will help the churches to get the most out of the visual aids that are 
available for their use. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Harold Moore, Chairman 

REPORT OF DEACON'S COMMITTEE 

We met several times during the year and planned the following: 
November 23, 1965 — Deacons' Night at Gorman Church with Mr. Bruce Little 
speaking on "The Role of the Pastor and His Deacons." 



48 



Eighteenth Annual Session 



May 17, 1966 — ^Deacons' Forum at HoUoway St. Church with Mr. Bruce Little 
acting as moderator of a panel of men from several churches. Mimeographed questions 
on the deaconship were distributed and members of the congregation chose those to be 
answered by the panel. The discussion went overtime. 

Members of the Committee who have served this year are: LeRoy Rigsbee, Coy 
Watson, Zack Long and Wiley Franklin. 



The 1966 budget was revised at the January board meeting from $32,000 to $31,080 
according to the pledges from the churches. 

Several things have forced the Committee to present an increased budget of 
$36,000 for 1967. Properties must be bought north of Chapel Hill and on the 
Chapel Hill Road immediately for new churches. The new office facilities will cost 
twice as much including utilities. 

We do hope that each church will consider our suggested goal as a MUST! 



The Committee on Ordinations has been called together for several meetings this 
past year for the purpose of examining candidates for the ministry. 

All the ministers in the Association were invited to attend these sessions in addition 
to those on the committee. 

At the request of the Durham Memorial Baptist Church, the Committee on Thurs- 
day, April 7, 1966, examined C. W. Moss and recommended him for ordination. 

At the request of the Temple Baptist Church, the Committee on Monday, May 9, 
1966, examined Frank Eakins, Jr. and recommended him for ordination. 

At the reqeust of the Watts Street Baptist Church, the Committee on Thursday, 
May 12, 1966, examined Charles Smith and recommended him for ordination. 

At the request of the Gorman Baptist Church the Committee on Friday, June 17, 
1966, examined James S. Hinson and recommended him for ordination. 

Members of the Committee who have served this year are: Paul Shoupe, Crate 
Jones, Robert Watson and C. Wiay Ivey.

REPORT ON BIBLICAL RECORDER 

In our accelerated pace we often find ourselves loaded down with mail consisting of 
letters, newspapers, magazines, soap advertisements and on down the line to the dog 
and horse racing circulars. So much mail is presently flowing through the postal 
department that even zip code has become a requirement to insure delivery. With all 
this mad rush will our Baptist Homes just pass up the golden opportunity to have on 
our reading list our denominational paper? Shall our members whether men, women, 
boys and girls be deprived of this one chance to fill our minds with news of churches, 
associations, colleges, missions, revivals and souls being saved, and, other Christian 
activity, while the daily press informs us of crime, war and debauchery? 

Our asociation is well named for a pioneer Baptist Missionary and it would be 
most unbecoming for any one to say that we are not mission-minded. How else can we 
learn about our orphanages, our homes, our schools and colleges except through our 
State Baptist paper? We think the Biblical Recorder is better than ever and we know 
that it stands in the forefront of news media when it comes to reporting on our 
association, our state convention and the Southern Baptist Convention. 

Just where are we as an association when it comes to our Baptist Paper, the 
Biblical Recorder? Who reads this paper and who does not? 

A hasty check of the subscribers to this paper reveals the sad fact that our newest 
mission, Parkwood, has more subscribers to the Biblical Recorder than two of our 
largest churches. 

The every family plan will place this denominational paper at our door for only 
$2.00 per subscriber. We think the upcoming year will have too many soul-stirring 
episodes to reach the press for any home in the association to be without the Recorder. 
New and disturbing clouds are on the horizon elsewhere. Everywhere we hear of a 
New Morality, the so called. Death of God Movement, and the drastic changes in peoples' 
attitude toward the church are being widely discussed. Christians need as never before 
to be informed. How better can we be informed on how to decide the problem of 
liquor-by-the-drink than through our Baptist press? No other publication can take 
the place of the Biblical Recorder. 

It is refreshing to know that this publication is not out of reach financially — $2.00 
per year — the same price it was 100 years ago. 

We hope that the number one item in every church budget will be the Biblical 
Recorder, every family plan. 

Respectfully submitted, 

B. Ray Olive, Representative

Eighteenth Annual Session 



REPORT OF ASSOGIATIONAL BOARD 

Yates Baptist Association continued to conduct its necessary business affairs of the 
associational year through two Council meetings and six scheduled associational Board 
meetings. These meetings were on November 23, 1965, at Gorman Church, January 
II, 1966, at Hope Valley Church, May 10, at Trinity Church, July 12, at Yates 
Church, September 13, at Rose of Sharon Church, and October 11, at Homestead 
Heights Church. As moderator, I want to give some summary account of the high- 
lights of the business transacted. 

Much of the time in the Board meetings was used in hearing routine organizational 
and committee reports, but reports which are essential to a continuing and constructive 
associational program. Involved in these reports were endless meetings, considerations, 
and actions relative to our associational program. 

Coming from Committee, Council, and Board suggestions were the following out- 
standing actions. 

1. That the Association commend to the churches the Five Year Spiritual Advance 
Program sponsored by the Baptist State Convention. 

2. That a committee be named to investigate sentiment in the association for the 
purchase of the Matthew Tyson Yates homestead buildings, and to consider the cost 
and wisdom of their removal to the Associational Assembly Grounds. 

3. Report of the Extension Committee by Fred Herndon, with color slides depicting 
population growth trends in the area. 

4. The term "Layman of the Year" was changed to "Lay Leader of the Year." 

5. Elected as nominees from the association to the Baptist State Convention's 
General Board were: Ernest Holt, Julian Motley, Ed Clements, and Miss Nannie Mae 
Herndon. 

6. Several reports of extensive improvements and use of the Associational Assembly 
Grounds. 

7. The moving of the Associational Offices to the Yates Church pastorium. 

8. Approval of requests for state aid to the association in the amount of $2400.00. 

9. Announcements of a Christian Life Conference at University Church, November 3. 

10. Approval of application to the Baptist State Convention for $2500.00, to be 
applied on the property being purchased north of Chapel Hill. 

11. Adoption of a recommendation to the annual meeting as follows: 

a. That a committee be set up to make a special study of our associational mis- 
sions outreach, giving special attention to the growing number of apartment 
houses in our area, the problems of the inner city, the possibilities of week- 
day programs in our churches, and ministering to people of special needs, 
such as juvenile delinquents, the deaf, the non-readers, the aged, and displaced 
persons j 

b. that the Committee on Committees be asked to submit the names of ap- 
proximately seven nominees at the annual meeting 5 

c. that the committee seek the help of Mr. Ernest Upchurch of our Baptist State 
Convention and the Metropolitan Missions Department of our Home Mission 
Board j 

d. that the committee bring a progress report at the May Board meeting and a 
complete report at the October Board meeting in 19675 

e. that the present committee on the "Inner-city Ministry" be disbanded in 
favor of the new "Special Study" committee} 



Yates Baptist Assoqation 



51 



I want to impress on the messengers the need for the Associational Board in trans- 
acting associational business between annual meetings. It is, therefore, our privilege and 
responsibility as pastors and two members from each church, to take our membership on 
this board as a stewardship.

Ray K. Hodge, Moderator

Convention. 

We have been seeking a format for a weekly radio religious newscast to be prepared 
by the Yates Baptist Association. The Commission has now taped an introduction for 
such a program, and the 1966-67 Committee will be meeting in the very near future 
to discuss the next steps in this effort.

Eighteenth Annual Session 



By next year, we hope to be able to report to you a further expansion of the use 
of radio and television, including- the addition of a weekly Yates Baptist Association 
program of the type indicated above.

REPORT OF THE STUDENT COMMITTEE 

Communication and understanding between the churches and the academic community 
need improvement. During the past year significant numbers of students and church 
leaders have continued to express serious criticisms of each other. This situation is a 
cause for prayerful concern to us. 

As the significance of this area as an academic center increases, the importance of 
a meaningful campus ministry will increase correspondingly. The framework for 
honest endeavor in this area already exists in the student programs being supported by 
the Baptist State Convention on the campuses of the universities in this associational area. 
The Yates Baptist Association is seeking- to encourage and assist this ministry throug-h 
some financial support and through its Student Work Committee. 

We call upon the leaders of our churches and the directors of student work on the 
campuses to join together in a serious search for ways to purposefully relate the students 
with whom they work to the community of the redeemed and the fellowship of the 
churches. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Sherrill Stevens, Chairman 

REPORT OF WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

Let us review the work of the Yates Association Woman's Missionary Union October 
I, 1965-September 30, 1966. We do give thanks unto the Lord for all his manifold 
blessings unto us and express our sincere appreciation to all those who have rendered 
service to Him through Woman's Missionary Union during the year as we participated 
in the emphasis of "Proclaiming and Witnessing." 

The Leadership (one night) Institute was held at Grace Church September 28 with 
302 members attending and 39 churches represented. There were 96 organizations at- 
taining recognition on Aims for Advancement which was an increase of 8 over last year. 
W. M. S. and Y. W. A. showed a decrease while G. A.'s and Sunbeams showed an 
increase. W. M. S. had 20; Y. W. A. had 5 ; G. A. had 45 and Sunbeam had 26 
attaining recognition. One church in the Association had an Honor W. M. U. (that 
is each organization attaining Honor) — Loives^s Grove. This W. M. U. has been very 
active in the promoting of missions under the capable leadership of its President, Mrs. 
W. C. Hall and they are to be congratulated not only for attaining this Honor but they 
have grown in Proclaiming and Witnessing for our Lord. The Yates W. M. U. Asso- 
ciation has attained Honor Recognition this year alsoj 15% each of the organizations 
have attained some recognition on the Aims for Advancement. 

Foreign and Home Mission Study workshops were held in October and January. 

Quarterly Association Board Meetings were held with good attendance. The 
January meeting was held at Temple Church with W. M. U. presidents of the 49 



Yates Baptist AssoaATiON 



53 



churches invited to attend. The Associational Yearbooks were distributed and Aims 
for Advancement were discussed in preparation for Mid-year reports. 

The annual associational meeting was held at Watts Street Church April 21. 
Reverend W. O. Hern, Missionary to Jordan, was our guest speaker. We were pleased 
to have our Moderator of Yates Association, Reverend Ray K. Hodge, and Brotherhood 
President, Mr. Ed Clements, assist with our program. There were 3 1 5 in attendance. 

May 26, 15 ladies from different churches in the Association assembled at the Camp 
Lodge with sewing machines, scissors and other equipment (also lunch for the day). 
They cut and made drapes for the bedroom windows in the Lodge. 

June II, the Executive Board and representatives from 15 churches assembled at 
Yates Camp Lake, 5:00-8:30 a.m., for a very impressive and rewarding Prayer Retreat. 
There were 41 in attendance. 

The annual W. M. U. Night was held at University Baptist Church, August 31, 
with 184. in attendance. Reverend and Mrs. Samuel James, Missionaries to Vietnam, 
brought the inspirational message. Slides giving information on The Life and Work 
Curriculum were shown by Mr. Floyd Rhodes. 

The records show that there are 49 W. M. S. organizations in the Yates Association 
with a membership of 2,457. (Temple has 2 W. M. S. and Parkwood Mission i). 
These organizations foster the following youth organizations: 22 Y. W. A.'s with 176 
members J 73 G. A.'s with 778 members; 82 Sunbeams with 1,032 members — making 
a total of 226 organizations with a total membership of 4,443. 

Hope Valley, Fellowship and First have organized Y. W. A.'s. Ephesus has 
organized a G. A. Parkwood is beginning Sunbeam and G. A. organizations for the 
new year. 

Mrs. C. P. Fogleman assumed leadership of G. A.'s in the fall after Mrs. Rayburn 
Harris had to resign because of illness. She was Director of G. A. Camp at Camp 
Kanata, August 22-28, with 112 in attendance. They have had their four quarterly 
meetings with an average attendance of 200. 

Mrs. J. E. Hughes, Sunbeam Director, reports 82 organizations with 1,032 enrolled 
and an increase in organizations and enrollment. 

Mrs. Donald Whitworth, Y. W. A. Director, reports a decrease in Y. W. A. organi- 
zations from 26 to 22 and membership from 222 to 176. Yet there seemed to be more 
efficient work — with 3 Y. W. A.'s attaining Honor recognition. Several girls attended 
Y. W. A. Conference in Greensboro in the spring. 

Thirty-six W. M. S. engaged in five days of Prayer for Foreign and Home Missions. 

The following organizations contributed to the three offerings — Foreign Mission, 
Home Mission and State Mission: W.M.S — 39; Y.W.A. — 13; G.A. — 53 j Sunbeams — 36. 

1,229 W.M.S. members read one or more books listed in "World in Books." 

Seven executive Board members attended W.M.U. Conference at Ridgecrest. 

Ten Board members attended Leadership Institute at Campbell College, August 25- 
26 in preparation for the associational workshop to be held at First Baptist Church 
September 26-30. 

We realize it is impossible to tell the complete story in facts and figures. If anything 
of lasting value has been accomplished, it will be seen in the lives of individuals — our 
own and those to whom we minister. 

Organizations receiving recognition on Aims for Advancement are:

REPORT OF BROTHERHOOD 

Since our last report to you many things have been done that we believe will make 
our Brotherhoods begin to function as real organizations in our churches. Most of our 
men in the past have been satisfied to let the Woman's Missionary Union take care of 
the "Missions work" in our churches. But we feel like now, with the new material 
we are getting that most of our informed pastors and leaders are very enthusiastic about 
our mens work and will push to make our Brotherhoods the best ever. 

We have had laymen from our Associational Brotherhood to speak in several of 
our churches this past year for "Laymen's Days" and regular Brotherhood meetings. 

We have had several Associational Officers' Planning Meetings this year with most 
of the officers attending. We combined our annual "Ladies Night" with the W. M. U. 
If you missed this meeting you really missed a treat for this was one of the highlights 
of the year. 

Our Man-Boy night was held at Gorman Church on July 16. Rev. Aubrey Quaken- 



56 



Eighteenth Annual Session 



bush, the V. A. Hospital Chaplain, was the speaker. The host church served hot dogs 
and drinks. This was also a good meeting. 

Ouii Brotherhood workshop was well attended by both pastors and laymen. Many 
who attended remarked that it was one of the best workshops ever held in our 
Association. 

We have great plans for next year which include every church in the Association. 
Every church can have a Brotherhood. 

Let us thank God for everything accomplished this year and pray for His leadership 
as we start our new year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Edwin B. Clements, President

REPORT ON BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES 

Eighty-one years ago North Carolina Baptists launched a Christian ministry of child 
care. It has grown considerably and is widely recognized for its qualities of service 
and pioneering spirit. Sons and daughters of the Children's Homes are scattered 
throughout the world. They are actively engaged in all walks of life and many are 
making a significant contribution. 

Special attention is being given certain areas of child care. An already strong 
program of group care is being strengthened. A good degree of progress has been 
realized in working with emotionally disturbed children at Greer Home in Chapel Hill. 
Constant attention is being given to more effective ways of meeting the highly specialized 
needs of children coming out of broken and inadequate home situations. 

A large number of good Christian homes have been enlisted for the care of foster 
children. More are needed in all sections of the state. Foster homes serve children 
of all ages and are of particular advantage for some who have special needs. Foster 
home parents may be of varying ages and circumstances in life. 

Support through both the Cooperative Program and the Thanksgiving offering has 
increased. In Yates Association however, we gave less — by $1150 — in 1965-66 than 
in 1964-65. 

Through estate planning and the making of Christian wills an increasing number 

of individuals and families are investing in present and future generations of boys and 

girls who are in need of the services of the Baptist Children's Homes. Roger Williams, 

former pastor of the Mills Home Baptist Church, is devoting full time to working with 

our Baptist people in this area. , . ,

"TEARING UP NEW GROUND" 

(Report by Supt. of Missions — Revised) 

This year I am not giving- you the usual prepared report of progress during the last 
year. Enough will be said about that in other reports. Let me speak to you frankly of 
the future as I see it. 

The City and Metropolitan Missions Special Study is needed very badly. It will 
consult with the State Convention and the Home Mission Board during its work. 
The committee may consider the increasing number of apartment houses in our area, 
work with alcoholics, juvenile delinquents, non-readers, the mentally retarded. It will 
consider day-care for the elderly, liaison with the Research Triangle Park, weekday 
programs, urban renewal, Religious Affiliate, B.S.U. and others. Even the upstairs 
rooms of our office might be used for a weekday program. 

We are further behind financially right now than we have been in ten years — 
not because our churches are behind in their giving but because we have had so many 
extra expenses in moving into our new office facilities. We have no regrets in moving} 
it was the right thing to do. But the initial moving cost money. If your churches have 
any undesignated funds that you can spare, send us a check. 

We are proposing a budget of slightly over $36,000 for 1967 but we need to get 
that budget up to $50,000 in the next year or two. We may be the most strategic 
area in North Carolina! We are not only a metropolitan area but we have two 
cities, two great universities, the R.T.P. with industries and housing developments going 
up everywhere. We need to plan long-range, lay out budgets for the next five years so 
that our churches can plan ahead. 

Our Foundation Committee may have a surprise for us in a few weeks. There are 
millions of dollars in our area that are going to other objects. The Foundation of 
our State Convention is set up to handle funds for us. Every Christian should have a 
will and leave something to the Lord's work. We are not talking about the amounts 
nor the objects — just the principle. 

We also need some philanthropic Baptists who will help us speed up our program 
of buying lots and paying off the indebtedness on our Camp. Oh, how I wish we could 
buy and move the Matthew T. Yates Homestead to the Yates Camp. It would break my 
heart if we were to hear that that old axe-hewn building had been accidentally burned. 
With all the money lying around why cannot we find a field with a big barn, that we 
can use for baseball, basketball, etc. We spend a lot of money to have these leagues 
under present conditions. 

We need to "contact" individuals in our churches in the interest of the non-readers, 
deaf, juvenile aid, the three social institutions, the "Quarter per Quarter" campaign, the 
Foundation, and Stewardship-Cooperative Program. 

Our Sunday School department also may have a big surprise in a few days. Our 
churches ought to tape the Life and Work Curriculum for the blind. Training Union 
is now on its way. There is no comparison with the organization we had three years 
ago. This organization may soon be responsible for all the training in our churches. 
Every church can have a Brotherhood program. Every church should elect a Brother- 
hood Director. 

I do hope we can do some real study through the Fellowship Committee. How can 
we help churches in trouble? We must work out proper procedures for varying 
circumstances. I would like to see the Ordination Committee consider recommending 
that ordination papers be required from candidates. 



60 



Eighteenth Annual Session 



I would like to see our Association, through the Radio and T. V. Committee, 
consider having a weekly program on which we can have teacher-training and other 
similar emphases. Fewer and fewer people come to our meetings. Perhaps we should 
hslp more people to stay home more. We have assumed that nothing can be done 
unless we have a continuous stream of meetings. 

Many times we go to meetings and hear the "Same Old Stuff." I doubt if you can 
say that about many of the things I have just mentioned. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Hubert S. Mumford

Association by a two-thirds majority of the members present and voting, the church 
or churches shall be received under the watchcare of the Association for a period of 
one year. It is understood that during the period of watchcare such churches will be

fellowship from any church that shall willfully depart from orthodox principles of 
the Christian religion as taught in the Bible and as believed by Baptists, or that fails 
to represent itself either by messenger or by letter at the annual session of the 
Association without sufficient reason, or that fails to support causes fostered by the 
denomination at large and of this Association in particular, or that ceases to be 
missionary in practice. 

Article 6. Any church may decline to send messengers to the Association at its 
pleasure. Whenever this constitutes a withdrawal of fellowship on the part of the

Report Section 



HISTORY OF BETHESDA BAPTIST CHURCH 

It was on the fifth Sunday in March, 1884, when three ministers and six deacons 
met at Hayes' School House in Durham County that Bethesda Baptist Church was 
organized. Twenty-three letters of application were presented. No records explain 
where or why the name "Bethesda" was chosen. 

The church is located on the Old Raleigh Road, five miles east of Durham in 
the community now known as Bethesda and near the fast-developing Research Tri- 
angle Area. It is one of the oldest churches in Durham County. 

The first minister was the Rev. J. H. Layton who preached the second Saturday 
and Sunday in each month. He was old and feeble, however, and served the church 
only a short while. Sixteen additional pastors have served since that time. Dr. 
L. E. M. Freeman served eight years, from 1922 to 1930, with the Church holding 
services on a half-time basis. It was during the pastorate of the Rev. Charles Jollay, 
who became pastor in 1931, that the Church began full-time preaching. He served 
14 years. Pastors who have served since Rev. Jollay include the Rev. John Knight, 
the Rev. R. C. Lanier, the Rev. A. D. Frazier, and the present pastor, the Rev. 
Russell Barbee. 

Soon after the church was organized, a small wood building was erected. An 
auditorium was added in 1923. The Rev. Jollay led the church in the construction 
of a pastorium in 1932. A three-story brick, educational building was erected in 
1935; and later in 1940, the present auditorium with a seating capacity of 500 was 
added to complete the building. 

The Rev. Russell Barbee became pastor on September 15, 1957. Since that time, 
stained glass windows have been installed in the auditorium and the church plant 
completely air conditioned. In June, 1963, an additional educational building of 
12,000 sq. ft. was added, consisting of a fellowship hall, equipped kitchen, completely 
graded nursery, plus assembly room and classrooms. These facilities have also been 
used since June, 1965, to operate a day nursery and kindergarten with an enrollment 
of approximately 65. 

Membership in the original church grew steadily for ten years, with records 
showing a membership of 144 in 1886. Membership reached a standstill for a 
number of years. A period of growth followed with membership increasing to 345 
in 1930 to 694 in 1945 and now has a present membership of 916. 

The church has had an interesting history financially. Claiming always to be 
a missionary people, the church began giving to missions even before it started 
paying its pastors. Gifts to missions the first year the church was organized amounted 
to $8.75. In 1959 the minutes read 'The church ranks among the top 100 Baptist 
churches in North Carolina in per capita gifts to Foreign Missions." At this time 
23% of its budgeted income is designated to "Outside Mission Causes." Beginning 
with an annual budget of $21.35 in 1894, the church now operates on a budget of 
$65,626. Since 1950 the church has paid one-half the salary of the Rev. James P. 
Kirk, Missionary to Brazil. 

The church has produced five preachers of the Gospel: the Rev. Jack Wilder, 
the Rev, Caleb Goodwin, the Rev. Norman Mitchell, the Rev. Charles Dorman, and 
the Rev. Bobby Travis, who is now serving on the Foreign Mission Field. 

In February, 1967, the church purchased property on Page Road for the purpose 
of starting a Mission of this church. The mission was organized and the first services 
held on August 6, 1967.

HISTORY OF YATES BAPTIST CHURCH 

In the fall of 1877, the "brush arbor" tent meeting was held on the corner of 
Comwallis and Chapel Hill Roads, out of which grew the organization — the fol- 
lowing April 20, 1878 — of Yates Baptist Church, Durham, N. C. It was a project 
of the First Baptist Church of Durham, under the leadership of Dr. Columbus 
Durham, who held the first pastorate in connection with his duties at the First Bap- 
tist Church. The Yates Baptist Church was named in honor of Dr. Matthew Tyson 
Yates, who was North Carolina's first Baptist missionary to go to any foreign land. 

There were 31 charter members, and at the present time, membership totals 819. 
Twenty pastors have served the membership, and at this time the pastor is Ray K. 
Hodge, who is in his eighth year. 

Of course, the brush arbor was temporary and the first building was a small 
frame structure. In 1923 a larger brick building was constructed. This building 
was totally destroyed in a tragic fire on December 22, 1946. Following the fire, 
services were held in the Hope Valley School building for 2OV2 months. The educa- 
tional unit of our present structure was occupied in September, 1946. The sanctuary 
was occupied for the first time in May, 1955, and the present property valuation is 
approximately $370,000. The church abides by a well-planned constitution and 
has advanced from a part-time preacher and a $1.00 per month sexton, to a staff 
of eight, operating on a yearly budget of $96,500. 

In addition to the year-round graded teaching auxiliaries of the church, an annual 
week of camping and study highlights the summer spiritual activities for the young 
people. A loan fund has been established and money is available to student mem- 
bers of the church who wish to borrow for their education. 

Recently, the church underwent an extensive re-modeling of building and equip- 
ment, landscaping and paved parking lot. In the fall of 1966 two significant projects 
were attempted: A successful Forward Program of Stewardship, and Day Care and 
Kindergarten. There are approximately 60 children enrolled, supervised by a staff 
of ten.

REPORT ON BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES 

Our Children's Homes continue to seek to provide the proper atmosphere, en- 
couragement and supervision to assure the development of the inborn, God-given 
talents of our children. 

This agency offers a variety of quality services to the children. A total of 33 
cottages on five campuses provide group care of different kinds. There are two 
residences for emotionally disturbed children, convenient to a great medical center 



34 



Nineteenth Annual Session 



where psychiatric services are available. This fall a cottage at Wallburg is being 
opened for the rehabilitation of boys. 

In addition to group homes, the needs of many children are met through the 
use of Foster Homes. A growing interest in this phase of our work is encouraging. 
Many families are finding happiness and opportunity for service in this way. Thus, 
many boys and girls, are privileged to grow up in Christian homes. 

Regional case work centers, staffed by trained social workers, are located in six 
prominent areas of the State and offer counseling services to distressed families. 

This June the first of the new family cottages was completed and is being used 
by brothers and sisters who can profit by sharing the same home. It is a model 
for the family approach in group care. A similar cottage is under construction at 
Mills Home and two buildings of this type are now being built at Kennedy Home. 

The Child Development Center at Mills Home was established to serve the local 
community as a means of strengthening family life and to provide a demonstration 
and informational program for churches in beginning any phase of weekday care 
and education for preschool children. 

Members of the Board of Trustees and the Staff of the Children's Homes are 
committed to the task of maintaining a Christian Program of Child Care — a pro- 
gram that will merit the undivided support and loyalty of our people. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Robert Frye, Representative 

REPORT ON BAPTIST HOSPITAL OF NORTH CAROLINA 

The rapid changes that are taking place today are affecting more and more 
people. During the last 25 years, we have witnessed in medical care a real trans- 
formation. No other field of service has advanced any faster than Medical Science. 

Today our Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem stands as one of the very 
finest in our country. It is very evident that this progress will continue as we look 
to the future. 

This is a day of increasing specialization, with men and women highly trained 
in their special fields of medicine. To keep in line with progress in research and 
other areas of service is very expensive. 

The year 1966 closed with a deficit of $400,000. This is how it happened. The 
hospital gave in Free Service Care a total of $1,511,000 beyond what service patients 
(those who must have financial aid) and their insurance could pay. 



Mother's Day Fund $277,000 

Welfare Funds from all sources 588,000 

Gifts from individuals, corporations, etc 101,000 

Other incomes: Soda Fountains, Barber Shop, Pharmacy, etc 145,000 

Deficit equals 400,000 



What did this $1,511,000 do? It provided 29,532 days of Free Hospital Care 
for 4,557 needy patients. It provided free or partly free service for 17,042 patients, 
who made 98,630 out-patient visits. 

Hospitals have been brought under the minimum wage law. Employees (563) 
are now being paid the minimum hourly wage, and, this will continue to rise. This, 
plus cost of living being up, plus drugs and other items caused an increase of 40% 
in operating expenses. 

Our records show that only 37 of our 47 churches have contributed to the 
Mother's Day Offering, January through September but we are already within $28.49 
of the complete offering of 1966. The Baptist Hospital is a service institution and 
the last hope for a great number of our friends, who are seriously ill. They have 
spent all their money and are asking for help. Pastors, Board Members and Finance 
Committees give this information to your people. THIS IS OUR MISSION! 



Yates Baptist Association 



35 



Baptist people have always responded when informed. Please may it be known 
now that many of our Baptist churches have not increased their contributions during 
the past 15 years. It is our hope that our people will become informed and increase 
that offering next year! 

Respectfully submitted, 
J. B. Cash, Representative 

REPORT OF THE EVANGELISM COMMITTEE 

This past year the churches of our association baptized 592 persons. This repre- 
sents a ratio of one baptism for every 45 members. We are grateful to God for 
every person who has been brought to confess Jesus Christ as Lord. We call upon 
our churches to give themselves to the work that brought Christ from heaven to 
earth, EVANGELISM. Evangelism is the heart of our churches' existence. If we 
fail to this point, then we have failed in our purpose and mission. 

Our churches face a tremendous evangelistic challenge in the Crusade of the 
Americas. This is much more than a two-week period of revivals. It is an empha- 
sis that should occupy our churches throughout the years of 1968-69 and '70. Our 
churches have been challenged by one of our mission fields, Brazil, to give ourselves 
to the work of evangelism and world missions for 1968-1969. Some of the chal- 
lenges in the Crusade of the Americas for our association are: 

ASSOCIATION-WIDE SEARCH FOR PROSPECTS— May 5-19 1968 
ASSOCIATION-WIDE VISITATION WITNESSING— Jan.-Feb. 1969 
ASSOCIATION-WIDE SIMULTANEOUS REVIVALS— March 16-30 1969 

Further plans pertaining to this phase of our evangelistic outreach will be brought 
to your attention in future board meetings and through your pastor who is a major 
key to the success of this great undertaking. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Vernon B. McDaniel, Chairman 



REPORT OF THE LIBRARY COMMITTEE 

The Library Committee has organized the associational library which is located 
in the associational office. The books are fully catalogued and ready for circulation. 
We wish to thank Mrs. Noah Brown, Mrs. Ollie Yeargan, and the G.A.'s from 
Ridgecrest Church for helping with the processing of the books. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. W. A. Crabtree, Chairman 



REPORT OF THE ORDINATION COMMITTEE 

The Ordination Committee of the Yates Baptist Association received requests 
this past associational year to examine two candidates for the ministry. 

These candidates were examined and recommended for ordination by their re- 
spective churches. 

The two men were Mr. Wayne Minton from HoUoway Street Church and Mr. 
Jim Bock from Cheek Heights Church. Both men have been ordained by their 
respective churches and are actively engaged in the ministry. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Malbert Smith, Chairman

Nineteenth Annual Session 



REPORT OF THE STUDENT WORK COMMITTEE 

This committee has met each quarter during the past year: at the BSU Center 
in Chapel Hill during the first quarter, at the Westwood Baptist Church during the 
second quarter, at the BSU Center in Durham during the third quarter, and at the 
Yates Baptist Associational office during the last quarter. 

We have continued to study our task and we have sought to define some specific 
goals and objectives. We have endeavored to encourage the* churches of this Asso- 
ciation to show an active interest in the university students and in the campus 
ministry of the BSU. The financial report shows that the Association has continued 
its monetary assistance to the program budget of the two Centers with a contribution 
of $1300. It is a source of great encouragement that several of our local churches 
have in their own local ministries active programs of student work and helpful support 
of the BSU campus ministry. 

We urge the churches to reach out and embrace the university students, to chal- 
lenge them and be challenged by them, to walk with them in the frustrating search 
for self-development, and to share with them their dreams for a better and more 
thoroughly Christian world. We urge the Yates Association to continue its support 
of student work through an active committee and by financial assistance to the cam- 
pus Center programs. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Sherrill Stevens, Chairman 



STEWARDSHIP AND COOPERATIVE PROGRAM REPORT 

Despite the fact that Southern Baptists have been sharing the gospel through the 
Cooperative Program since 1925, many do not know what this plan is. The ques- 
tion, "What is the Cooperative Program?" is often heard. 

The answer is simple. What the budget is to the local church, the Cooperative 
Program is to the denomination. It is support for all missionary causes at home 
and abroad; it's preaching the gospel; it's healing in the name of Jesus through hos- 
pitals and clinics everywhere; it is teaching and training Christian leaders for all 
the great tasks of Kingdom endeavor. 

As our people worship with tithes and offering Sunday by Sunday and as the 
local church channels a part of its income through the Cooperative Program, we 
enter into partnership with God and one another in obedience to the command, 
"Go . . . preach . . . teach . . . !" 

Let us resolve to pray earnestly for all Kingdom work and support our prayers 
with sacrificial giving of self and substance. 

Last year, North Carolina Baptists gave $5,787,311 through the Cooperative 
Program. Supplementing this with Special Offerings amounting to $2,897,639, we 
had a total of $8,684,950 for all mission causes! Two associations (Anson and 
Yates) had 100% of their churches giving through the Cooperative Program. 

According to records available, our association gave $187,740.33 during the last 
year for World Missions through the Cooperative Program. 



RECOMMENDATIONS 

We recommend: 

(1) That each church plan, vigorously promote, and subscribe a worthy budget; 

(2) That special emphasis be given to prayer for cooperative causes during 
October and throughout the year; 



Yates Baptist AssoaATioN 



37 



(3) That each church give regularly through the Cooperative Program; 

(4) That in response to the special call of the General Board of the Baptist State 
Convention, we increase our Cooperative Program giving by at least 10% 
during the coming year, that all may learn of Christ. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. G. H. Dickerson, Representative

REPORT OF THE WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

The Woman's Missionary Union of the Yates Baptist Association has had a re- 
warding year in many ways. One reason for the blessings received was the inspira- 
tion received from our watchword for the year: ". . . Grow in grace and in the 
knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" — I Peter 3:18. Emphasis for the 
church this year has been "A Church Fulfilling Its Ministry Through Education." 

There have been several "firsts" this year for our Associational WMU: 

1. YATES WMU NEWS — a quarterly news bulletin with dates to remember, 
emphasis for the quarter and news of interest. It has been sent to all local WMU 
presidents, youth directors, pastors, and Associational WMU Executive Board with 
the hope that they will share the information. 

2. February 17, 1967 — Associational Y.W.A. chartered a bus to go to the State 
YWA Convention in Charlotte for an overnight trip. In spite of the inclement 
weather there were 39 who went from 8 churches. 

3. May 15, 1967— Associational-wide study of the WMU Concept Book, THE 
WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION PROGRAM OF A CHURCH by Mathis and 
Dickson, was taught at Grace Baptist Church by Mrs. Carl Lewis, second vice- 
president of North Carolina Woman's Missionary Union. Twenty-five churches 
were represented by 162 persons who attended. Mrs. Lewis, with the help of Mrs. 
R. E. Gray (mission study director of association), used groups from ten churches 
to help her present this most interesting and worthwhile study. 

4. July 15, 1967 — Associational Sunbeam Day Camp for 8-year olds. Mrs. 
C. D. Johnston, Associational Sunbeam Band Director, with the help of other adults 
(men and women) worked together to make our first Day Camp very successful. 
There were seven churches represented with sixty-two attending. Some activities 
included: Mission study with Miss Laura Frances Snow, missionary on furlough 
from Chile, teaching WHO ME?; nature hikes; Bible study; creative activity; picnic 
lunch; rest time; recreation; skits; singing; and inspiration to close a wonderful day 
of camp at our assembly grounds. 

5. Associational Calendar of Prayer was included in the WMU yearbook giving 
the birthdays of local presidents, executive board members, and superintendent of 
associational missions in the hope that this would be used in addition to our regular 
calendar of prayer for our missionaries and would strengthen our ties through prayer. 

6. July 22, 1967 — G.A. FAIR at Yates Assembly grounds was a festive occasion 
with singing, food, fellowship, competition among the churches and real group spirit 
for missions (booths represented different countries). Nineteen churches were repre- 
sented by 268 GA's and counselors.

7, WMU Room at Associational office — for files, etc. that need to be centrally 
located for easy access to those who might have the desire to use them. This in- 
cludes posters, slides, filmstrips, flip charts, etc. 

8. A four-night Leadership Institute was held September 26-30, 1966, at First 
Baptist Church with 264 attending from 33 churches. Those persons meeting re- 
quirements for Leadership Cards were 104. 

Quarterly Associational Executive Board meetings were held with good atten- 
dance, splendid cooperation and genuine interest in seeking the best way to assist 
our association in carrying out God's will for us. In January local WMU presidents 
attended also when we met at Grey Stone Church. The meeting in July was held 
at the Associational office (this is just one advantage of the new location of this 
office). 

Our annual associational WMU meeting was held at Temple Church, April 20, 
1967, with Mrs. James Moorhead, missionary to Philippines, as guest speaker. Other 
guests included four visitors from Murdoch Center, Associational Youth Choir, Mr. 
Bruce Little — vice-moderator of Association, Mr. Aubrey Wheeler, vice-president of 
Associational Brotherhood. Group II served a delicious meal to 283 people from 
forty-four churches. 

The August 29th associational WMU Night was held at Grey Stone church. 
Theme for this meeting was "Teach Me" with special emphasis on educating our 
youth. Guest missionary speaker was Miss Laura Frances Snow, youth worker in 
Chile. Youth directors gave reports of activities by our YWA, GA, Sunbeam Band 
organizations. Little Cindy Dorrity gave her ideas of Sunbeam Day Camp and 
sang "Jesus Loves Me" in Spanish; Susan Rogers gave her impressions of GA camp 
at Camp Kanata in August as a Junior Counselor. It was an inspiring and chal- 
lenging evening for the 182 who attended representing 32 churches. 

We are thankful for all the dedication on the part of our board members, local 
church officers, WMU members, and pastors who have made contributions to this 
year's work. Our prayer is that as we "grow in the grace and knowledge of our 
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" that each of us might be more consecrated and more 
useful to God in the work that He has for us to do. 

Some facts and figures are listed below in the hopes that you might know a

NINETEENTH ANNUAL MEETING— YATES W.M.U. 
April 20, 1967 

The 19th Annual Session of the Yates Associational W.M.U. was held on April 
20, 1967 at the Temple Baptist Church with Mrs. Carlton O. Couch, President, pre- 
siding. The theme of the meeting was "Grow In Knowledge of our Saviour." 

Mrs. Robert Helms, with Mrs. A. Clyde Ferrell at the organ and Mrs. W. T. 
Dorrity at the piano, led in singing "O Master, Let Me Walk With Thee." The 
invocation was given by Dr. Julius Corpening, Pastor of Temple Baptist Church. 

Mrs. Lin wood McCullers, President of Temple Baptist W.M.U. extended a cor- 
dial welcome to the group and Mrs. A. A. Gregory responded. 

Mrs. Mary Whaley, Group Leader IV brought the devotion by giving her per- 
sonal testimony as to what Christ means to her, followed by prayer. 

Choral Selections "O For a Thousand Tongues" and "When We all Get to 
Heaven" was rendered by the Associational Youth Choir, under the direction of 
Mr. David Pierceall. 

Mrs. Couch recognized the Pastors, visitors, and Mrs. Helen Harper from Mt. 
Hermon Church who painted the back-drop for the meeting. 

Mrs. Robert Helms led in singing "Teach Me to Pray" followed by the Call to 
Prayer by Mrs. A. A. Gregory, Associational Vice-President. 

Individual reports were given by the Executive Board presenting the work of 
the past year and indicated activities and accomplishments. 

A special Feature was presented by Murdock Center, Butner, North Carolina. 
Chaplain Greene introducted two of the students from the Center. Miss Linda 
McCoy rendered a musical selection "Breathe On Me." Mr. Charles Holt ex- 
pressed the gratitude from all the other students for the Sunday Services that were 
rendered to them each week. Chaplain Cecil also added his thank you for the 
work that was being done. He stated that our Association gives more voluntary 
work in any given hour than any other organization in the State. He shared with 
the group their schedule for Sunday. Chaplain Cecil shared accomplishments and 
also many needs that were still unable to be met. He said, a way that churches 
can really help it to get acquainted with individuals and share the love of Christ 
with them and to meet their needs on special occasions. The greatest thing is for 
them to know someone cares for them as an individual. There is a unit for the 
blind and a cottage for old people that have no services and need people to share 
their love and concern for them. He closed his thoughts with this verse — "When 
ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren."

the Foreign Mission Board in 1962. Mrs. Moorhead spoke on "Go Ye . . . Learn 
of Me." She stressed that we must show a concern for others as Jesus did. We

YATES BAPTIST ASSOCIATION MISSION ACTION 

Murdoch Center Project 

For the past few years our churches have responded in a splendid manner to 
the Sunday afternoon worship service at Murdoch Center. We appreciate all the 
help you have given in this most worthwhile endeavor. However, after a thorougli 
study and prayer, we would recommend the following change in our procedure. 

Beginning December 31, 1967 instead of leading a formal worship service at 
the 3:00 hour for the entire congregation at Murdoch Center, we are planning to 
ask each of our churches in the Yates Association to visit in one cottage. 

A main purpose of our visit is socialization. One of the greatest needs of the 
residents is individual attention and companionship from someone who will listen 
to them and carry on a personal conversation. Loving care from others is most 
meaningful to these persons, many of whom do not have contacts or visits outside 
the institution. 

In your visit you may wish to include some simple games or singing or some 
fun activity. If some of your group plays instruments such as the guitar, autoharp 
or a band instrument, this would be enjoyed. A brief worship of five minutes would 
be an appropriate close to your visit. 

Following are some suggestions for your group as you plan to go to Murdoch 
Center on your assigned Sunday: 

1. Report to Murdoch Center School Building at 3:00 p.m. From there 
someone will direct you to a cottage. 

2. Provide simple refreshments for approximately 65-75 residents 

A schedule for the churches has been prepared and distributed to every church 
in our association. If there are further questions contact Miss Ila House, 111 Cherry 
Grove St., Phone 596-3836. 

In your continued cooperation with this important ministry, this committee is 
sure that you will experience a new sense of fulfillment of the Master's words: 
"When ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."

REPORT OF MUSIC COUNCIL 

The Music Council met six times during the past season in executive meetings 
to plan the work of the group for the season. There was good attendance of coun- 
cil members in most of these meetings. 

A choir was used for the opening of each session of the 1966 Annual Associa- 
tional meeting in October. It is planned to have a similar choir again for the 1967 
meeting. 

The annual Choral Clinic was held at Temple Church on February 13. About 
60 people from 22 churches of the association attended. The guest leader for this 
clinic was Dr. J. Perry Watson. 

One of the council members, Joe McGugan, led a male chorus in the annual 
Deacons' Night meeting at Braggtown Church in November. 

David Pierceall, another council member, has been doing a fine job with a Youth 
Choir which has sung several times during the year, particularly in connection with 
Training Union youth meetings. 

On March 13 an area choral clinic, led by members of the music council, was 
held at Ridgecrest Church. There were representatives present from seven churches, 
with an attendance of 40. Ridgecrest had by far the largest number of those present, 
and that same church had the largest representation at the Choral Clinic held the 
previous month at Temple Church. 

The music council director attended a rehearsal of the Ebenezer Church choir 
on July 19, toward the end of giving assistance as requested in certain areas. It 
should be stated here that members of the associational council are on call (as time 
and opportunity permit) to give such assistance to churches. We cannot claim to 
be able to solve every problem, of course, but we will assist in every way possible 
to the best of our ability. We feel it is helpful just to share ideas among various 
churches. 

On Sunday afternoon, October 15, the seventh annual Yates Association Hymn 
Sing was held at Edgemont Baptist Church. Choirs from Guess Road, Homestead 
Heights, Olive Chapel, Grey Stone, and Edgemont took part. The hymns used 
were favorites of people in the Association, for they were chosen by a poll taken 
during the previous four weeks in the churches of the Association. First place hymns 
were: general, "How Great Thou Art"; Christmas, "Silent Night"; Thanksgiving, 
"We Gather Together"; Easter, "Christ Arose."

REPORT OF CAMP COMMITTEE 

During the past year the camp has been used by 71 groups from 24 churches. 
Groups on a single week have ranged from one to five. Including associational 
R.A., G.A.,Y.W.A., and Sunbeam camps, there has been a total registration of 
2,182 people. It has been found that once a church uses the facilities it will tend 
to come back over and over again. Several of our churches, however, have never 
had a group on the grounds. 

The ball field, playground, shelter, pond, tent areas, and lodge have all been 
improved. A piano was donated by Pearson Music Co. and a wall clock by the 
Grace Church W.M.U. 

Our main problem has been the shortage of water. We have had another un- 
successful attempt at drilling for water, even with the advice of a hydrologist. How- 



46 



Nineteenth Annual Session 



ever, there are plans for providing an adequate storage tank which should alleviate 
the problem. As soon as this condition is remedied we will be able to complete 
plans for several weeks of resident camps next summer.

Walter O. King, Chairman 



REPORT OF CHRISTIAN LIFE COMMITTEE 

On November 3, 1966, shortly after the Association met last year, a conference 
on the theme "A Church's Mission and the Problems of Poverty" was held at the 
University Church in Chapel Hill. The conference was sponsored jointly by the 
Yates, New Hope, and Cedar Grove Associations. The speakers for the occasion 
were Dr. Samuel D. Proctor of Washington, D. C, and Dr. Claude Broach of 
Charlotte. Their messages were recorded on tape and made available through the 
Yates Association Office. 

Follow-up meetings were held, and the work of the conference, including its 
discussion groups, was summarized. Some of the comments and suggestions were 
mimeographed and made available to participants and churches. Perhaps it is 
appropriate to remind Yates Association of some of these comments: 

1. Our church buildings are not being used enough for the good of others who 
are outside our folds. 

2. Christians must keep on working and not despair when those who are helped 
do not come to church or respond gratefully. 

3. The poor often do not understand those who try to help them. 

4. Churches can provide day care centers, literacy classes, classes for unwed 
mothers, and similar programs in areas where needed. The LISTEN team that lives 
and serves within a poverty-stricken area was cited as a good example of a church- 
sponsored activity. 

5. Much of the problem lies in the hearts and minds of people. Christians have 
trouble even defining the problem and hold widely diversified opinions about what, 
if anything, churches should be doing. Nevertheless, the church has an obligation 
to support programs, including those of government, that help the poor break out 
of the cycle of poverty. 

A second jointly sponsored conference will be held at First Baptist Church, Dur- 
ham, on Thursday, November 2. The theme will be "Christian Family Life and 
Its Social Implications." The churches of Yates Association need the thoughtful 
inspiration of these conferences, and the committee earnestly solicits a good and 
representative attendance. 

The committee notes with pleasure that the state convention-sponsored Confer- 
ence on Christian Social Ministries was held in Durham this year, and that the City 
and Metropolitan Missions Department is focusing attention on many of the con- 
cerns of this committee. 

In addition to statements on civil disturbance, housing, and peace, the commit- 
tee considered the inclusion in this report of statements on abortion and alcoholism. 
With regard to problems concerning abortion, we are pleased to note that the state 
legislature dealt with this matter this year and produced legislation which the com- 
mittee regards as helpful and progressive. 

We suggest that the committee for 1968 include among its major interests a 
study of alcoholism and drug addiction in this area, and that the committee consider 
what steps, appropriate to Christian concepts of freedom and law, should be taken 
by the churches of the area in regard to pornographic literature and records. 

We also wish to commend the development of the concept of MISSION ACTION 



Yates Baptist AssoaATioN 



47 



in the Brotherhood and W.M.U. organizations, especially as it relates to the whole 
of a church. We note with pleasure that the Temple Church is planning an Insti- 
tute on Mission Action to which our churches will be invited. 

The Committee welcomes every sign that the churches of this Association are 
increasingly conscious of their fellowship with Christian churches bearing names 
other than Baptist. In view of the changing nature of the community and its needs, 
and in view of the large number of Baptists here, it behooves us to take the lead in 
ecumenical relations. By so doing we support current mission action in our com- 
munities. The work of the Interchurch Council for Social Service in Chapel Hill 
and Carrboro is the kind of activity meriting the warm support of all the churches in 
our metropolitan area. 

Statement on Civil Disturbance 

The Christian Life Committee of the Yates Baptist Association expresses its 
deep concern with respect to rioting in our cities in recent months. It rejects with- 
out equivocation such expressions as legitimate means of resolving problems and 
condemns lawlessness, vandalism, and violence. 

In so doing the Committee reminds us that much that has gone on is the direct 
expression of resentment against injustice, deprivation, and the deplorable conditions 
under which minority groups are forced to live in this nation, conditions which 
none of us would passively accept for ourselves or for our children. The Commit- 
tee feels that the time is rapidly running out when we can avoid open rebellion and 
revolution within the borders of our nation. We, therefore, call upon our churches 
to involve themselves in creative, constructive ministries to human need in urban 
and rural ghettos. We further strongly urge that the public and private sectors of 
our society — local, state, federal — immediately undertake forceful and fair methods 
to achieve adequate job opportunities, housing, health and education services, and 
political enfranchisement for all citizens of this nation. 

As we call attention to these conditions and call upon churchmen and citizens 
for constructive action we remind all who hear and read that the crisis whereof 
we speak exists in our own community and is being intensified almost daily. At the 
same time we deplore the inaccurate identification in the public media of the demon- 
strations of the summer in Durham as "riots." 

Statement on Housing 

Housing that is safe and clean is essential for healthful living both for persons 
and communities. In the past, as in the present, not all housing provided the resi- 
dents of our communities has been of such quality. Such conditions must be reme- 
died if we are to live in peace and tranquility. 

The Christian Life Committee, therefore, calls upon the owners of rental property 
to maintain their property in decent, safe, and clean condition, abiding by the 
housing codes of our municipalities. We call upon the Housing Authorities and 
City Councils to provide needed public housing units in the light of both massive 
urban renewal projects and the apparent inability of the private sector of the 
economy to provide adequate housing. In so doing we urge the appropriate authori- 
ties to exercise due care to avoid the intensification of ghetto life by a concentration 
of housing projects and to be responsibly sentitive to the needs and problems of the 
residents of such projects. 

We note with satisfaction that the Interchurch Council for Social Service in 
Chapel Hill and Carrboro has taken first steps toward providing low-cost housing 
for moderate and low income families. We call attention to the fact that such 
housing may be provided on a non-profit basis with the aid of federally financed 
programs. 

As we address ourselves to the governments of our communities and nation, we 



48 



Nineteenth Annual Session 



call upon our churches to develop an understanding of the problem of housing, to 
find ways of ministering to the needs of persons forced to live in slum conditions^ 
and to support efforts on the part of government agencies, private agencies, and 
individuals to remedy such conditions. 

Statement on Peace 

At the Southern Baptist Convention meeting in Miami this year, the Christian 
Life Commission asserted in part: 

"Extremely complex issues have thrust our nation into armed conflict in Viet 
Nam. It is our profound conviction that as Christians today we must nevertheless 
reaffirm and proclaim those eternal certainties concerning peace which are clearly 
revealed in the Bible: the boundless love of God for all men; the value of human 
life; the worth of the individual; and the prime importance of justice, mercy, and 
love in human relationships. 

"In view of the precarious balance of terror which exists in this nuclear age, 
the waging of peace is a responsibility believers can evade only at great cost. The 
mandates of the Christian gospel, moreover, preclude our evasion of those problems 
which contribute to our dangerous predicament and make for war. 

"While historical situations recur when war seems to be the lesser of two evils, 
it is generally true that men come to such tragic alternatives because they have 
neglected the things that make for peace. Christians do well to remember the 
words of Jesus, addressed to a disciple trying to defend him, 'They that take the 
sword shall perish with the sword,' as well as his great beatitude, 'Blessed are the 
peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God.' The ideas and circum- 
stances which culminate in conflict can never be permanently overcome with mili- 
tary might alone. 

"Many factors in history have militated against the peace of the world. Some 
of the most obvious of these are: totalitarian political systems which claim a 
monopoly on truth; the ambitions of power figures in expansionistic states; the 
great gulf between the rich and the poor, both within nations and between nations; 
and the conflicts based on race, color, religion, and class .... 

"We believe that any hope for peace and stability in our world will require the 
creative and redemptive efforts of all Christians in removing these and other barriers 
to peace." 

The recent statement on Vietnam by the Committee on National Affairs of the 
North Carolina Council of Churches also has much to commend it. The statement 
affirms the basic Christian theological positions that are so relevant to peace: 

1. We affirm God's universal and loving rule over the world. All men and all 
nations are under His judgment and care. It is our responsibility to prevent our 
people from worshiping the nation as God. Good people who should know better 
frequently assume that the God of heaven and earth is always on the side of our 
nation and our people . . . ." 

2. "We acknowledge the universal sinfulness of man. Yet in time of war even 
good churchmen become guilty of painting the enemy as all evil and our nation as 
all good. The church should lead the nation to repentance . . . ." 

3. "We affirm the Christian's universal obligation to love, even when love is 
not returned . . . ." 

4. "We affirm that the Church is universal, transcending all national boundaries, 
all racial barriers, and all political conflicts . . . ." 

The statement warns that there are three prerequisites before Christians ought 
to do anything specific in connection with national conflict: 

1. "More learning. Too many of us speak out of ignorance and poor prepara- 
tion. In our reading and study, we should make every effort to look at all sides 



Yates Baptist AssoaATioN 



49 



of an issue. Some magazines, for example, give only the conservative viewpoint 
and some speak only for liberals. We should be sure our reading is balanced. We 
should be familiar with the statements of the official bodies of our own denomina- 
tions, the North Carolina Council of Churches, the National Council of Churches, 
and the World Council of Churches." 

2. "More hard thinking. It is one thing to read it. It is quite another thing 
to think. Discussion groups are helpful. We need to talk with persons who can 
help us think through the implications of our ideas, and better still, who will pray 
with us for wisdom and guidance. Local church groups should promote dialogue 
on Vietnam." 

3. "More openness. We should be willing to keep in communication with those 
who disagree with us, seeking constantly to reduce the area of disagreement." 

Your committee stands solidly with the Christian Life Commission of the South- 
ern Baptist Convention in its approach to the church's relationship to the govern- 
ment in time of conflict: 

"It is not the Christian Life Commission's intent to make specific proposals about 
government policies, military strategy, or diplomatic approaches to negotiation with 
our present political adversaries. We recognize that there are vast differences of 
opinion among Christians about peace in general and about our involvement in 
Vietnam in particular. We do believe, however, that open discussion of the issues 
is desirable; and we strongly affirm that public debate is a great strength in our 
democratic tradition. Such open discussion and public debate are necessary if we 
are to achieve a sense of moral certainty about the course of our action. We are 
disturbed both by the large weight of world opinion which questions the wisdom 
of our current policy and by those here at home who doubt the patriotism of any- 
one who questions our government's present official position. As Baptists, we 
understand that the separation of church and state leaves the church free to speak 
on national issues and impels us as Christian citizens to give our best thought to 
public affairs. . . ." 

"We call upon all the churches not be blinded by distorted appeals to false pa- 
triotism so that they lose sight of the personal tragedy, the great sorrow and the 
fantastic cost attached to the present conflict. A spirit of solemn penitence is in 
order." 

"We urge all Southern Baptist churches and our fellow believers everywhere to 
unite in earnest prayer for peace and for renewed vision among God's people for 
the task of declaring and demonstrating His love to the suffering peoples of the 
earth," 

Members of the Committee who have served this year are: Julius H. Corpening, 
Chris C. Hamlet, Mrs. N. B. Lockwood, and E. Coye Still.

REPORT OF RADIO-TELEVISION COMMITTEE 

In the report of this Committee last year, we outlined the various radio and 
television programs being broadcast in this area after being produced by the Radio 
and Television Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention. The list is im- 
pressive. 

It was our hope that, by providing this information to the members of the 
Yates Baptist Association, many more of us would take advantage of these out- 



50 



Nineteenth Annual Session 



standing programs. We have no way of accurately reflecting the listening and 
viewing audience of this area, but we hope this has been true. 

Also in our Committee report a year ago, we indicated that we were investi- 
gating the feasibility of developing a weekly radio religious newscast to be prepared 
by the Yates Baptist Association and made available to one or more of the local 
stations. 

A careful study of the programming by each of the radio and television sta- 
tions in this area brought us to the conclusion that we are not making use of the 
opportunities which already are available to us, and while the development of our 
own weekly program certainly is desirable it would require a considerable monetary 
outlay and the services of one individual. The demands on that person's time would 
be so great as to preclude it being done by a volunteer, unless it was someone both 
qualified and retired. 

Hence, as the next logical step, your Committee recommends that each person 
in the Association who is concerned with the dissemination of information through 
these media first make full use of the opportunities which currently are available. 

To help acquaint you with these opportunities, your Committee, with the assis- 
tance of the Yates Association staff, has prepared a folder which lists current 
religious programs, including both those prepared by the Radio and Television 
Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention and locally produced programs 
which accept announcements and other materials from local churches. The folder, 
which is being distributed at our Associational meeting here today, not only names 
the programs, stations and times of broadcast, but also lists the names of the per- 
sons to contact and the deadlines for submission of material. Most deadlines are 
one week in advance of broadcast. 

One further word of advice is offered by your Committee: get to know the 
programs before sending material to them. Nothing can hurt our relations with 
these stations more than sending materials which, by their very nature, lets the man 
at the station know that you never watch or listen to his program. 

Finally, your Committee urges each of you to make use of the information that 
is available to you in your own Yates Association office concerning the availa- 
bility of audio visual materials. These include recorded music, motion pictures, 
Bible study courses, and literature which offers suggestions to the pastor going on 
television or to the church whose service is to be televised. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Clarence E. Whitefield, Chairman 



REPORT ON THE BIBLICAL RECORDER 

In times like these when so much information is being flashed through the air, 
across the skies and over the printed page we give our humble thanks for the fact 
that we still have one source of information that is neither polluted by the spoils 
of profit nor tainted by political pressure. 

The $3 annually paid for a subscription to our "Biblical Recorder" is a bargain 
that cannot be surpassed by any other news media. The Recorder has been the 
official organ of the North Carolina Baptist State Convention for over one hundred 
and thirty years and it still remains in the forefront in its battle for righteous living. 

With a Christian gentleman like J. Marse Grant to edit this paper and with the 
assistance of his able staff and board of directors the Baptists of North Carolina 
naturally expect a great paper and they get it. 

In our recent Legislature the Recorder, through its fearless editor, gave our 
State the cold facts on how near we came to having liquor by the drink and with it 



Yates Baptist Association 



51 



sold as easily as a soft drink is sold today. It was this editor who personally and 
almost single handed went before the various committees and the entire Legislature 
to fight this deadly sin from our state. We have every reason to believe that this 
same fight will go on into our next Legislature and we believe that the "Biblical 
Recorder" with its present staff will be in there fighting our cause. 

Again and only recently when our state was being browbeaten by a national 
politician over the fact that North Carolina raised, sold and manufactured tobacco, 
the Recorder with blaring headlines proclaimed the fact "that notwithstanding any 
harm which may come from tobacco we have not heard of it causing any broken 
homes, divorces and highway deaths." The politician whose family had made mil- 
lions on whiskey never responded to the statement. 

A full page of the Recorder was given recently to the views of a mountain 
minister, who is one of Yates Association's own sons, and this article gave a formula 
for using all of the retired and semi-retired ministers in his locality. With the large 
number of this group alone we may have been able to find how to use this valuable 
material in a profitable manner. 

At the present time one of our own associational ministers. Reverend D. E. 
Perkerson of the Carrboro Church is giving us the Sunday School lesson from week 
to week through the Recorder. 

The regular reports on our mission fields, universities, colleges, schools, children's 
homes, homes for the aged, relief and annuity boards and the many and varied 
activities of our Baptists over the state, the nation, and the world are not available 
to North Carolina Baptists outside of the "Biblical Recorder." 

Our goal for next year is for every Baptist home in the Yates Association to have 
and to read the "Biblical Recorder." 

Respectfully submitted, 

B. Ray Olive, representative 



REPORT OF EXTENSION COMMITTEE 

A church site for future development has been acquired at the northwest corner 
of Cole Mill Road and Sparger Road about one and a half miles northwest from tfie 
present city limits of Durham. This site of four acres cost $13,500.00 with $3,800.00 
paid down, the balance in three annual installments. 

The need exists for church sites around Chapel Hill-Carboro, directly north of 
Durham in the Roxboro Road area, and between Durham and Chapel Hill. The 
committee expects to study these and other areas for sites, and make further recom- 
mendations as soon as possible and wise. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Fred J. Herndon, chairman 



REPORT OF CITY AND METROPOLITAN 
MISSIONS COMMITTEE 

The Minutes of the 1966 Annual Meeting call for this committee to bring a 
"complete report" at this (1967) annual session. We can only bring a progress 
report, however, for the work of this committee is so vast and far-reaching that 
we on the committee feel that we are just beginning to do what the Association 
wants us to do. 

Due to the change in the chairmanship of the committee we were late getting 
started. Our first meeting was held in March, and we met once each month there- 
after, with the exception of the month of August. 



52 



Nineteenth Annual Session 



We first occupied ourselves with an attempt to understand our assignment. It 
seemed to us to be basic and elemental that if we were going to make a study, we 
had to have definite and clear objecties before us. Inasmuch as these were not 
furnished us, we felt it our duty to develop them. 

One area of work that we have accepted as our responsibility is that of research 
into the nature and character of our own urban area. Accordingly, we employed a 
part-time secretary to get some facts for us from the City Planning office on popu- 
lation trends in Durham, projections of population concentrations, projected land 
uses, plans for urban redevelopment, church locations and membership, and thorough- 
fare projections. Similar studies will be needed for Durham County and for Chapel 
Hill. 

Also, we had Dr. Jack Preiss, of the Department of Sociology of Duke Univer- 
sity, take one entire meeting and talk with us about the character of Durham. An 
example of the magnitude and complexity of our situation can be seen in the 
statement that population shifts within the U. S. will soon result in the U. S. being 
composed of 10 or 15 large cities, with Yates Association being on the outer rim 
of a new city with New York at its center. 

Another area of study that has occupied us is the clarification of concepts. We 
find it necessary and beneficial to arrive at a common understanding of such terms 
as "The Church," "Urbanization," "Ministry," "The Association," "Cooperation," 
etc. Accordingly, each member of the committee has been requested to prepare a 
paper on the following subjects: "The Mission of the Church in an Urban Society," 
"The Mission of the Association in an Urban Setting." Two such papers have 
already been presented by members of the committee. The remainder will be given 
at the next meeting. 

All in all we feel that only now are we getting into a position to clearly formulate 
our objectives. In another month or two we expect to be able to offer to the Board 
a statement of our objectives for their concurrence. 

We do feel that the work of this committee is of such nature that its personnel 
should be continued rather than be changed from year to year. We respectfully 
request that the Committee on Committees be instructed to abide by this request 
insofar as it is possible to do so. Also, we would like to request that at least two 
more laymen be added to the committee as it is currently overbalanced in favor of 
the preachers. 

A very important matter regarding the work of this committee is the relation- 
ship to, and the involvement of, our Superintendent of Missions. We who compose 
this committee realize that the amount of work to be done and the volume of study 
and research necessary to orderly and expected progress, require much more time 
and attention than we can give as individuals or as a group. At our request, our 
Superintendent of Missions attended the "Summer Institute in Urban Planning" held 
at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, July 10-21, 1967. There he 
received invaluable training that will help equip him to guide us in our transition 
from a rural to an urban community. It appears to us that he will need to attend 
other such institutes and conferences from time to time. 

Our Superintendent of Missions v/ill also need to work very closely with our 
Home mission Board in developing guidelines and principles for our urban-ministry- 
to-be. He will need to work closely with the Department of City and Metropolitan 
Missions of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina. More and more we 
will depend upon him to assimilate, compile, interpret and distribute facts and 
information pertinent to the work of this committee. It will be necessary for him 
to give more and more of his time to the vital and important matters with which 
this committee is concerned. 

Therefore, we conclude our report with the following recommendation: 



Yates Baptist AssoaATiON 



53 



WE RECOMMEND that the Associational Superintendent of Missions make the 
work of the City and MetropoHtan Committee a major focus of his office. 

WE FURTHER RECOMMEND that Associational organizations and committees be 
requested to assume an increasing number of responsibilities heretofore carried 
on by the Superintendent of Missions. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Russell Barbee, chairman 

REPORT OF THE ASSOCIATIONAL BOARD 

Since the 1966 annual Associational meeting, the Association has conducted its 
business in the four meetings of the Associational Board. The Executive Committee 
of the Board also met to suggest matters of concern to the Board. The four Board 
meetings were at Westwood on January 10, Faith on May 16, Mount Pisgah on 
September 12, and Fellowship on October 10. 

As in local church business meetings the majority of the time was spent in hear- 
ing reports of committees and organizations and in consideration of the regular 
programs of the Association. 

Among the actions taken in the board meetings were several which are set forth 
here as significant and worthy of continuing attention. 

1. At Westwood, the Finance Committee recommended that the Church expan- 
sion figure be changed from $5,660.00 to $2,307.00. This recommendation passed 
with an amendment that any additional funds received would be added to this 
account. 

2. The board approved a recommendation from the Executive Committee that 
the Association be authorized to send flowers in case of death, only to the staff in 
the Associational office and their immediate family. 

3. At Faith, the Evangelism Committee's proposal was approved that "the Board 
recommend to the churches to set up February of 1969 for training and witnessing 
and March 16-30 of 1969 for simultaneous revivals in cooperation with the Crusade 
of the Americas." The committee received approval of its request that it be granted 
necessary funds for honoraria in 1969 with details to be worked out by the Evan- 
gelism and Finance Committees. 

4. The Extension Committee received approval for its request that "we recom- 
mend that the Associational Board at this time authorize the purchase of a church 
site within the limits of the budget, provided such purchase is approved by the Ex- 
tension Committee, the Finance Committee, and the Executive Committee." (The 
motion concerned the area of Garrett and Old Chapel Hill Road.) 

5. At Mount Pisgah, pastor Tony Gurganus, newly elected Associational Sunday 
School Superintendent, recommended that the Association plan for an Associational- 
wide survey which would be interdenominational and interracial. This emphasis is 
to be directed by Mr. Ted Williams, of the Department of Survey and Statistics, 
of the Baptist State Convention, and assisted by approved workers. The survey 
would be held May 5-19, 1968, in preparation for a Sunday School Enlargement 
Campaign in September in cooperation with the continuing Metropolitan Study in 
our Association and in preparation for the Crusade of the Americas. 

6. During the year progress reports were made concerning the continuing work 
of the City and Metropolitan Study Committee. 

7. Pastor B, E. White, newly elected chairman of the Fellowship Committee, 
distributed copies for the Deacons of all the churches asking them to participate 
in a significant depth study entitled "A Study and Survey of the Relationship Be- 
tween Pastors and Churches." 

8. The following recommendations from the Executive Committee were pre- 
sented and approved. 



54 



Nineteenth Annual Session 



a. That the following committees be reduced in number of members as 
follows: Camp from 11 to 7, Student Work from 11 to 7, Extension from 9 to 5, 
Audio-Visual Aids from 7 to 5, Finance from 9 to 6 (plus Treasurer). 

b. That the Extension Committee be changed in name to the Missions Com- 
mittee in line with the Southern Baptist terminology, 

c. That the Jewish Neighbors Committee be eliminated in favor of the Non- 
Evangelical Committee, which would broaden the scope of our interests. (World 
Religions, Sects, Judaism, Catholicism). 

d. That the Social Ministries Committee be renamed Institutional Committee. 

e. That the Juvenile Aid Committee be eliminated in favor of the Christian 
Social Ministries Committee, in line with the State Convention and Home Mission 
Board terminology which would broaden the scope of our interests. (Literacy, 
rehabilitation of juveniles, alcoholics, ex-prisoners, etc.) 

f. That the general policy of this Association be to lend rather than give 
money in starting new churches, both toward the purchase of land and the erection 
of first buildings. (Details can be worked out before the October Board meeting.) 

g. That the Associational Council be eliminated; that the leaders of Sunday 
School, Training Union, Music, Brotherhood, W.M.U. and the chairmen of Finance, 
Camp, Mission, and Activities Committees be combined with the officers to form 
the Executive Committee. (This would eliminate the necessity of electing "mem- 
bers at large" in the November Board meeting each year; it would also combine 
the function of the Council and the Executive Committee.) 

9. Superintendent of Missions, Hubert Mumford, moved that November 5 be 
recommended to the churches as a day for observing "Pastor Appreciation Day." 
This recommendation was approved. 

10. At Fellowship, the recommendation of the Executive Committee that the 
Baptist Student Unions of Duke and U.N.C. be allowed the use of the Associational 
Camp, with the same privileges and requirements of other users, was approved. A 
supplementary motion was made and passed that the Executive and Camp Commit- 
tees be asked to look into the possibility of use of the camp by other religious 
groups, when the camp is not being used by the Association, and that these com- 
mittees consider the setting of fees for its use. 

11. It was announced that an anonymous donor had given the Duke B.S.U. a 
new Dodge bus for its use. 

12. Mr. Fred Hemdon brought a recommendation for the Finance and Extension 
Committees, and it was approved as follows: 

a. That 4.19 acres of land at the northwest corner of Cole Mill and Sparger 
Roads be purchased as future church sites under the following terms. 

(1) Purchase price of $13,500.00 

(2) That the Association make a down payment of $3,800.00 

(3) That the balance of $9,700.00 be payable in three annual installments 

(a) First installment, $3,233.33 plus interest of $582, due October, 

1968, for a total of $3,815.33 

(b) Second installment of $3,233.33 plus interest of $388 due Octo- 

ber, 1969, for a total of $3,621.33 

(c) Third installment of $3,233.33 plus interest of $194 due October, 

1970, for a total of $3,427.33. 
The total interest would amount to $1,164. 

(4) Payments may be made in advance with a saving of interest if the 

Association so chooses. 

b. Regarding assistance in obtaining property and building new churches, we 
recommend that the Association adopt a general policy in the future of extending 
aid on some basis of repayment into the Extension Fund by the recipient church.

As you can see, many of these matters are very important and far reaching. 
Every church should have a part in deciding these issues. This possibiHty and ex- 
pectation is provided for in the organization of our Associational Board, which 
provides for each church to be represented by its Pastor and two members from each 
church. Churches can help themselves, the Association, and the work of our Lord 
by making sure they are represented in each Board meeting.

REPORT OF AUDITOR 

I have examined the statement of cash receipts and expenditures of the Yates 
Baptist Association for the calendar year ended December 31, 1966. My exami- 
nation was made in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards and 
accordingly included such tests of the accounting records and such other auditing 
procedures as I considered necessary in the circumstances, except that it was not 
practical to extend my examination of income beyond the recorded receipts. 

In my opinion, the accompanying statement of cash receipts and expenditures 
presents fairly the recorded cash transactions of the Yates Baptist Association for 
the calendar year ended December 31, 1966 on a basis consistent with that of the 
preceding year.

REPORT OF THE SUNDAY SCHOOL 

The Yates Associational Sunday School organization seeks to assist our churches 
in establishing, conducting, enlarging, and improving their Sunday School program. 
Various groups of leaders from our churches have taken a serious look at the needs 



56 



Nineteenth Annual Session 



of their Sunday Schools in our association. These needs appear to be three-fold: 
training, conservation, and outreach. Dedication and proper motivation are basic 
in seeking to approach these needs. The Associational Sunday School is taking 
definite action toward meeting these needs. 

Already this year we have had a one-night conference meeting on October 2. 
This was specifically designed as an orientation for new workers using the theme, 
"The A.B.C.'s of Good Teaching." Other meetings and projects planned for this 
year are a Sunday School Rally on February 20, a V.B.S. Clinic on April 23. 

Probably our most extensive emphasis will be an association-wide survey planned 
for May 5-19. This will be a telephone survey and will be interracial and inter- 
denominational. The survey will be directed by the Rev. Ted W. Williams, Secre- 
tary of Statistics and Surveys of our North Carolina Convention. The Rev. Ray L. 
Cumbee and the Rev. Vernon B. McDaniel will serve as co-chairmen of the work. 
This survey will prepare the way in our own association for a Director-Led Sunday 
School Enlargement Campaign which is planned for September 14-20, 1968. 

There is one other aspect of our work planned for this year that promises to 
be of tremendous proportions. This is the personal assistance the Associational 
Sunday School workers desire to give the individual churches in their particular 
needs. Our workers can provide this assistance only as the churches request it, 
and as the churches are willing to share their best workers as potential consultants. 
So we deeply desire churches in our association to know we want to be of assistance 
to them, whatever their needs may be. We feel this can be one of our most valuable 
methods in meeting the needs of our Sunday Schools in our association. Call on 
us; we want to assist in any way we can. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Anthony Gurganus, Supt. 



REPORT OF BROTHERHOOD 

During the past associational year a Ladies' Night banquet was held on May 2 
at Grey Stone Church and the annual workshop for leadership training was held at 
Guess Road a few days ago on October 16, 17. The Ladies' Night was opened with 
a social hour for fellowship and the banquet closed with an inspirational message 
by D. J. Booth. 

For the boys, campouts were held on May 5 and 12 at the Yates Camp. The 
Royal Ambassador Camporee originally set for July 14, 15 at Lake Unity but 
"rained out" was re-scheduled on, July 29. This big event combined the Man-Boy 
Night and the two campouts scheduled for September. 

We are looking forward in Brotherhood work to the years ahead. The new 
program and the gradual appearance of new vital materials, the emphasis upon 
mission action outside the walls of our church buildings, the closer cooperation in 
mission study with the W. M. U. all point to greater success in these areas of 
endeavor. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Edwin Clements, Director 



REPORT OF DEACONS' COMMITTEE 

Two meetings were held during the year. The first one, held at Braggtown 
Church on November 22, 1966, featured J. Marse Grant, editor of our Baptist 
state paper, as speaker on the topic "What's Expected of the Deacon?" After the 
message, time was given for questions. 

The second meeting was held on May 9, 1967, at Lakewood Church. This was 



Yates Baptist Association 



57 



a continuation of the spring meeting of 1966. It was in the form of a forum. A 
list of questions was distributed among those in the congregation from which single 
questions could be chosen and directed to individual panelists or the panel as a whole. 

This pattern of meetings each year seems to meet a real need. One is primarily 
for inspiration and the other for information. 

We are looking forward to the Deacons' Rally on November 28 at Calvary 
Church at which time Mr. J. Marse Grant is coming back to give an analysis of 
the results of the questionnaires being distributed among our deasons and pastors. 
We urge our deacon chairmen to complete this project in their churches. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Paul Burmahl, chairman

REPORT OF FOUNDATON COMMITTEE 

1966-67 finally saw a breakthrough in the efforts of the committee to produce 
the first of a series of tracts on the general subject of wills. The first tract is en- 
titled "Stewards After Death" and deals with basic information: the importance 
of a will, how to make a will, what can be done through a will, giving to the Lord's 
work after death. 

It is hoped that at least one more may be produced in 1967-68. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Lester Owen

Nineteenth Annual Session 



REPORT OF AUDIO-VISUAL AIDS COMMITTEE 

During the past year additional slides, filmstrips, discs, tapes and flip-charts have 
been added to the audio-visual aids library. In the main they are confined to the 
general areas of methods and missions. 

Since moving from the inner-city to our new office facilities at 2821 Chapel Hill 
St. next to the Yates Baptist Church, v/e are able to report a much greater circula- 
tion of our various projectors and audio-visuals. There is plenty of free parking, 
and a carport in case of inclement vi'eather. 

We remind our leaders that every church has several copies of the catalog and 
supplements. There are filmstrips under the headings of Associational, State, Home, 
Foreign Missions and Cooperative Program; Brotherhood, Music, Sunday School, 
Training Union and Woman's Missionary Union; Baptist Institutions, Church Ad- 
ministration, Deacons, Doctrine, Evangelism, Stewardship and others. 

Our audio-visual equipment includes the following projectors: 1 filmstrip, 2 
motion picture, 1 overhead, 1 magnajector, also an easel, a tape recorder, and 2 
70" X 70" screens. These are available to the churches by reservation. 

We urge our church leaders to keep a copy of the associational catalog in their 
office or library and accessible to the members at all times. If, perchance, the 
catalog has been "mislaid" we urge our leaders to ask our associational oflSce for 
another copy. A "mislaid" catalog in the church will block the reservation of 350 
audio-visual aids in the associational office. 

Respectfully submitted. 
Hunter Hobgood, Chairman 

REPORT OF FINANCE COMMITTEE 

This year the finance committee has attempted to take a long-range look at 
associational finances. It has come to our attention that certain inequities exist 
as a result of simply asking the churches for an increase each year. It was decided 
to appeal to the churches on the more equitable basis of $2 per resident member. 
It is gratifying to see that more and more of our churches are including in their 
church budgets their proportionate share of the associational program. 

The Yates Association is performing an increasing service to the people and 
churches of our fellowship. To meet foreseeable needs it is apparent that we must 
think in terms of increasing our goals each year looking toward a $50,000 budget 
in the near future. 

Our goal in increasing our budgets from year to year is always more adequate 
financing of our extension work in the purchase of new properties. It is encouraging 
that a large percentage of any increase in our new budget will go for this purpose. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Ellis Thomas, Chairman 

REPORT OF HOMES FOR THE AGING 

Last year nearly all of the residents of our four Homes for the Aging in North 
Carolina benefited directly from the special offerings from the churches. We served 
approximately the same number of aging people as we did in 1965-66. 

The new home in Yancey ville, our fifth, will be occupied next week on Nov. 1. 
This home will allow us to accommodate 200 residents. 

We do hope that more of our churches will remember our ministry to the aging 
in some substantial way during the coming year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
W. P. Wells, Representative

REPORT OF RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE 

Be it resolved with grateful and wondering hearts: 

That we may sense the splendid significance of this moment of resolution and, 
thereby, understand that it is a high moment in which with souls sincere we do 
lift to God, the Servant-Father of all, the glory and the gratitude for the wonders 
of His marvelous grace to us in all things. 

That it is, therefore, no common moment to be kept in a trivial spirit or manner, 
but that it is far rather a wiiolly-other moment to remember the grace of Him who 
"came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for 
many." 

That the substance and spirit of this session of our Association, therefore, be 
to give God the glory and the gratitude for the wonder of having "blessed us with 
all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ." 

That we give God the glory and the gratitude for His people who are at the 
First Church and at the Ridgecrest Church who, after the manner of our Master, 
took upon them the form of servants and, for His sake, took us in and gave us of 
their meat and their drink — and of their love for the Lord. 

That we beseech the Lord, who so inspired them with his own manner, abun- 
dantly to bless them with the glory of knowing that, inasmuch as they did it unto 
us, they did it unto Him, who is the Servant-Lord of all. 

That we give God the glory and the gratitude for each servant-officer of His 
in this Association, And that to our Moderator, Ray K. Hodge, and our Clerk, 
Harrell B. Perry, and our Superintendent of Missions, Hubert S. Mumford, and 
each member of our Program Committee, and each other servant who has labored 
in love for the Lord in this Association in any capacity, and each who had any 
portion in making music for the Master, who has put a new song into each of our 
souls — to each of these servants of His let us, and we do, say, "We are bound to 
thank God always for you and your toil for the churches of Him who "loved the 
church and gave himself for it." 

That we likewise beseech our Lord, who sees all such service as rendered unto 
Himself, to cause each of these servants of His to hear Him saying in their hearts, 
the "Well done, thou good and faithful servant; enter thou into the joy of thy Lord." 

That we ask our Father, who suffered the sorrow of His Son on the cross, to 
shed abroad all the comfort of His glory in each of our homes who have sons in 
the Armed Forces, and very especially in our homes that have experienced bereave- 
ment in the loss of loved one in the Vietnam conflict, and in the churches who have 
had members called to their Heavenly Home. 

That in this world of trouble and travail the love of Christ shall cause the 
churches of this Association to be channels of peace where there is war, of love 
where there is hatred, of right where there is wrong, of hope where there is despair, 
and of forgiveness where there is sin. And that all of this be done in and through 
His name. 

That we give God the glory and the gratitude for the bond of His love which 
has bound us together, heart to heart and hand to hand, in this Association of love 



Yates Baptist Association 



65 



and service and most particularly for the joy and harmony of the fellowship which 
has been ours in this annual meeting. 

And, finally, that we pause in prayer and ask the Father, who has been all the 
glory of our past, to give us the grace and the glory to go on ahead into the future 
serving Him with our "last full measure of devotion," who alone is the God of all 
glory and the fountain-source of all grace — to whom be the glory and the gratitude 
"as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen 
and amen. 

Submitted with glory and gratitude 

to God forever and ever, 
Mrs. Leo Bridgers 
Rev. Henry B. Anderson 
G. F, Lipe, Chairman. 



REPORT OF THE FELLOWSHIP COMMITTEE 

It has been said that the longest distance in the church is the fifteen or twenty 
feet between the pulpit and the pew. To shorten this distance and to create better 
understanding the Fellowship Committee has undertaken a study and survey of the 
relationship between pastors and churches. Much of the year has been spent in 
working out a satisfactory form for the survey and study which has been mailed to 
all the deacon chairmen in the association for distribution to the deacons, the 
finance committee, and the pastor. These are now being returned and compiled. 
The results of the study will be published and distributed to the association in the 
new year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
B. E. White, Jr., Chairman

Constitution 

Revised 1968 



Name 

Article 1. This body shall be known as the Yates Baptist Association of North 
Carolina. 

Membership 

Article 2. The Association in session shall be composed of the duly elected mes- 
sengers from the cooperating Baptist Churches in Durham County and its adjacent 
territory, the regularly elected officers of the Association, and the members of the 
Associational Board. 

Article 3. Each church shall be represented at the annual meeting of the Asso- 
ciation and at any special meeting during the year by messengers who shall be duly 
certified, and in the following ratio: 

(1) Three for the first hundred members or fraction thereof and one for each 
additional hundred or fraction thereof, provided that the total number of 
messengers shall not exceed ten. 

(2) All pastors of churches of the Association shall be recognized as messengers, 
in addition to those specified above. 

Article 4. Churches seeking to seat messengers in the Association shall apply to 
the Missions Committee prior to the annual meeting of the Association, giving evi- 
dence of their faith and order and their agreement to be received under the watchcare 
of the Association. Upon recommendation of the committee and the approval of the 
Association by a two-thirds majority of the members present and voting, the church 
or churches shall be received under the watchcare of the Association for a period of 
one year. It is understood that during the period of watchcare such churches will be 
accorded all the services of the Association and all its privileges with the exception of 
the right to seat voting messengers and to voting representation on the Associational 
Board. At the end of the year of watchcare, the church or churches may, by a two- 
thirds vote of the Association, be received into full fellowship of the Association or 
continued under watchcare or have the request for fellowship rejected. Upon admis- 
sion to full fellowship, the church or churches shall be authorized to seat duly 
elected messengers with voting privileges and voting members on the Associational 
Board. 

Article 5. The Association shall have power, upon giving notice of nine months 
and by two-thirds majority vote of messengers present and voting, to withdraw 
fellowship from any church that shall willfully depart from orthodox principles of 
the Christian religion as taught in the Bible and as believed by Baptists, or that fails 
to represent itself either by messenger or by letter at the annual session of the 
Association without sufficient reason, or that fails to support causes fostered by the 
denomination at large and of this Association in particular, or that ceases to be 
missionary in practice. 

Article 6. Any church may decline to send messengers to the Association at its 
pleasure. Whenever this constitutes a withdrawal of fellowship on the part of the 
church, the Association shall not as a body, or through a representative or repre- 
sentatives, seek to restrain by coercion or law the withdrawal action of the church. 



18

Purpose 

Article 7. The purpose of the Association shall be to devise, recommend, and

advancing the Redeemer's Kingdom, and to cooperate with the Baptist State Con- 
vention of North Carolina and the Southern Baptist Convention in all religious edu- 
cational, missionary, Sunday School, Training Union, Brotherhood, Music, Woman's 
Missionary Union Auxiliary and other work fostered by said conventions. 

Powers and Prerogatives 

Article 8. The Association, when convened in meeting, shall sit as advisory 
council, and shall have no power to infringe on any of the internal rights of the

usefulness for their adoption, and may claim for itself, its objects, and its recom- 
mendations the highest consideration.

after the fourth Sunday in October, and may meet with different churches on the two

tor, Clerk, Treasurer, Auditor, Historian, and such others as may be authorized by 
the Association. 

Article 14. All officers shall be members of the churches affiliated with the 
Association. 

Article 15. The officers shall be elected at the first session of the annual meeting

himself, except the Moderator, who may not serve more than two years in succession. 

Article 16. The Moderator shall preside over the annual meeting of the Asso- 
ication and begin each session punctually. He shall appoint such committees as may 
be authorized by the Constitution, or by the Association, enforce the rules, preserve

book of advance reports and organizational officers which had not been ap- 
proved. Bob Gray, pastor of Grace Baptist Church, moved the adoption of 
these reports and officers. This was seconded by Dr. Perry and approved. 

73. It was announced by Mr. Mumford that Edward Laughridge is going

sion items in the budget: adult rehabilitation — $6,000.00, church expansion — 
$3,000.00 and evangelism — $1,000.00. He pointed out the significance of such 
a controversy over the very reasons for our existence. He then requested that 
we close the morning session and annual meeting, asking the Lord to help us 
to forget our own personal desires and unify us in the great task that is before 
us in 1969. Paul Shoupe moved that the above request be approved unanimous- 
ly. This was seconded by Vernon McDaniel and approved. 

75. H. B. Anderson moved that a picture of Dr. L G. Greer, who died 
during this associational year, be included in our annual minutes. This was 
seconded by John Laverty. Ray K. Hodge made an amending motion that our 
associational clerk also send to the North Carolina Baptist State Convention a 
request that the North Carolina Baptist annual include a picture and dedication 
to Dr. Greer in 1968 edition. These two motions were approved. 

76. Mr. Mumford announced that the lay leader of the year award and 
trophy was being presented to Stewart Rigsbee who has worked faithfully on

Report Section 



HISTORY OF OLIVE BRANCH BAPTIST CHURCH 

In 1875, there was no Baptist Church nearer than the Cedar Fork Church to 
serve the needs of the Baptists living near the old Dayton Academy in the then Wake 
County. A group of Baptists, among them: Sol J. Allen, Sandy Penny, George C. 
Stallings, H. W. Nichols, and others anticipated the need of a church. They consulted 
Rev. Addison Purefoy, a pastor of country churches, residing in Wake Forest, as to 
the expediency of forming a church. He investigated the situation, and solicited 
W. A. Smith, W. R. Cullum, and B. W. Spilman, who were ordained ministers and 
students of Wake Forest College, to form a presbytery. The organization was af- 
fected in the Dayton Academy where the cemetery is now. Rev. Rufus Ford, a 
student at Wake Forest College, was invited to hold a revival meeting in a Brush 
Arbor. Many made professions of religion and joined the Church. Eleven charter 
members, mostly from the Cedar Fork Church formed the nucleus of the new 
organization. Mr. Ford was called to the pastorate of the Church and remained as 
pastor until 1878 when he graduated from Wake Forest College, and resigned to go 
to the Southern Baptist Seminary at Louisville, Kentucky. 

For nine years the Olive Branch Church was a member of the Central Associa- 
tion. In 1885, the Church was admitted to the Mt. Zion Association where it re- 
mained until a new association, the Yates Association, was formed in 1948, largely 
from the Mt. Zion Association which had become too large for effective work. 

Many good and strong pastors have served the Church during the nearly 93 years 
of its existence. The following men have been pastors of the Olive Branch Baptist 
Church from its beginning:

27. Rev. Fred Lipe, our present pastor who has served faithfully and well for 
twenty-four years. 

The first building of the Church was a large one room wooden building. It served 
the needs of the Church until the new brick building was built in 1925 under the 
pastorate of Rev. A. H. Porter. Rev. A. C. McCall untiringly labored with the mem- 
bership to pay off the indebtedness on the building. 

The present membership is 194 with total contributions of $11,468.00 as reported 
to the Association in 1967. The value of the Church building and grounds is 
$86,000.00. Many of the pastors for the first 48 years were college students. In 
1923, the Church decided to call a resident pastor, so Rev. J. A. Brendell, pastor of 



Yates Baptist Association 



35 



the Yates Baptist Church, was called. Since then most of the pastors were resident 
pastors, except for Rev. Wayne Oates, who served only a few months before resign- 
ing to go to the Southern Baptist Seminary, where he is now a professor of Sociology. 
These facts account in large measure for the large number of pastors which the 
Church has had during its existence. 

With the opening of the new John W. Neal Junior High School, and with the 
many new homes in the Church community, the prospects are very bright for an era 
of great progress and growth of the Church as a mighty force for Christian influence 
in the community. The future is as bright as the promises of God. 

HISTORY OF TEMPLE BAPTIST CHURCH 

In the early 1880s the Durham Baptist Church led in the establishment of after- 
noon Sunday schools in various sections of the growing city of Durham. One of 
these met in a building on South Duke Street owned by W. T. Blackwell. Within 
two years after its beginning the group had grown in size and commitment to begin 
efforts to organize a church and construct a house of worship. Through the generos- 
ity of Mr. Blackwell and W. G. Vickers a building was erected on West Chapel Hill 
Street. On January 29, 1888, 78 persons constituted a church to serve the growing 
population in "the western part of the city." 

The first elected officers were: Clerk, W. E. Woods; Treasurer, John A. Tatum; 
Deacons, J. W. Blackwell, W. J. Christian, L. W. Highsmith, J. V. Rigsbee, J. D. 
Roberts, and W. H. Weatherspoon, C. C. Newton was called to be the first pastor. 
The congregation selected as a name The Blackwood Baptist Church. 

During the early decades of the church's existence remarkable progress was made. 
Able men such as Will B. Olive, J. N. Booth, A. A. Butler, George J. Dowell, and 
C. J. D. Parker served as Pastors. For reasons not indicated in the minutes the name 
of the church was changed in 1890 to The Second Baptist Church. Of far-reaching 
significance was the number of your people who responded to a call to vocational 
Christian service during these early years. Among these was Jesse Burton Weather- 
spoon, long-time professor of preaching at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. 

The period from 1905 to 1922 was a time of progress and change in many areas. 
A large house of worship using the then popular 'Akron" plan of seating was erected 
during the pastorate of W. C. Barrett (1905-1912) with the original building of 1888 
being renovated for use as educational space. The organizational meeting of the 
B.Y.P.U. Convention of N. C. was held in this new building. Increase in member- 
ship and pastor's salary were realized while W. T. Riddick served as Pastor (1912- 
1917). During the ministry of W. A. Ayers (1917-1919) the name of the church 
was again changed. This time the congregation adopted the name, The Temple 
Baptists Church. In the period of 1919-1921 the church had grown sufficiently to 
add its first full-time secretary in the person of Miss Annie Crutchfield. Miss Crutch- 
field, along with Miss Mozelle Breeze, later attended the W.M.U. Training School 
in Louisville, Kentucky. One of the most significant revivals in the history of the 
church was held by the pastor. Dr. E. D. Poe (1919-1921) with 74 persons being 
added to the membership. 

On September 1, 1922, Trela D. Collins began the longest pastorate in the 
church's history. During his 14 years of work the church grew significantly in mem- 
bership and ministry to the larger community. In 1923 Miss M. Wynona Chaney 
became the Church Secretary and Pastor's Assistant, a position she held with grace 
and distinction until she retired in 1958. A pipe organ was installed and an edu- 
cational annex was erected in this period of the church's life. In 1936 Mr. Collins 
resigned as pastor to become the first Executive Secretary of the newly formed North 
Carolina Council of Churches.

Twentieth Annual Session 



The years from 1936 to 1950 were years of growth and change as the church 
lived through the end of the Great Depression, World War II, and the post-war years. 
Under the leadership of John T. Wayland (1936-1943) the church erected the first 
unit of a new educational complex and began a ministry to servicemen stationed at 
the nearby newly established Camp Butner. Following Dr. Walyand's resignation 
the church secured Horace G. Hammett as pastor. A parsonage was acquired at 
1405 Arnette Avenue to replace the one removed to make way for the new educa- 
tional building on Shepherd Street. A building fund was initiated to enable the 
church to erect a sanctuary. In March of 1950 Mr. Hammett became the Associate 
General Secretary-Treasurer of the S. C. Baptist State Convention. 

In the decade of the 50s the church realized a number of long cherished dreams. 
Under the leadership of Charles A. Maddry (1950-1959) the church erected a lovely 
sanctuary to replace the one constructed prior to 1920, Along with the sanctuary 
came an increased emphasis on an educational ministry. Foreseeing the need for 
expanded facilities the church in turn acquired more property and made plans for 
additional educational space. 

With the payment of the indebtedness on the sanctuary building the church re- 
activated its Building Committee in 1961 to plan for the construction of new educa- 
tional facilities. This work was completed in 1965. During this time the Rev. 
Julius H. Corpening, son of the first Church Secretary, became Pastor. Again Temple 
was host to a convention of young people in 1962 with the presence of the N. C. 
Baptist Student Union Convention. Continuing the emphasis begun in the 50s on ex- 
panded educational ministry, Dr. R. Hargus Taylor, Billy J. Baker, and John M. 
Keith served as associates in education during this period. In 1967 the church added 
a staff member in the person of Clyde V. Buckner to expand the church's ministry 
of music. 

Temple Baptist Church throughout its history has shared the life and fellowship 
of Baptist bodies. Its first affiliation was with the Mt. Zion Association. It continued 
this relationship until the Yates Baptist Association was organized. Also, it has 
actively participated in the affairs of both the N. C. Baptist State Convention and the 
Southern Baptist Convention. 

Now at the point of its 80th year, Temple Baptist Church looks back with grati- 
tude upon a great heritage. It anticipated the future with confidence and hope as it 
contemplated an even more significant ministry in the heart of the city of Durham as 
it commits itself to the work of God's Kingdom in the world.

REPORT OF THE SUNDAY SCHOOL 

During this year of the Crusade of the Americas the Sunday Schools of our 
churches have an unique opportunity in helping us prepare for revival. To this end 
the Yates Associational Sunday School organization seeks to assist our churches in 
establishing, conducting, enlarging, and improving their Sunday School program. 

On October 7, at Temple Baptist Church, we had a one-night conference meeting 
for the Sunday School teachers and leaders. The theme of this meeting was "Devel- 
oping Concepts of Sunday School Work." There were 83 people from our churches 
who attended this conference. 

In February we are planning an Associational Growth Conference. This confer- 
ence will consist of an afternoon and evening session at which time principles and 
methods of church growth will be explored. This study will guide us in developing 
a continuing program of visitation in our churches. The Sunday School Department 
of the Baptist State Convention will assist our association in this project. A final 
meeting planned for this year is a V.B.S. Clinic in April. 

The Associational Sunday School workers desire to offer personal assistance to 
the churches of our association in developing their Sunday Schools. If any of us 
can help in any way please call on us. 

Respectfully Submitted, 

Anthony Z. Gurganus, Superintendent

REPORT OF BROTHERHOOD 

The year has been rewarding in that concentrated effort, association-wise, has 
revealed the need of closer relations with the individual churches in their Brother- 
hood activities. 

Last November Durham Memorial hosted the R. A. Conclave with Mr. Lewis 
Rigsbee officiating at afternoon outdoor activities. Mr. Aubrey Wheeler, Mission 
Action leader, was in charge of the hot-dog supper and was assisted by the ladies of 
Durham Memorial. The Rev. Robert Watson Mission Study leader was in charge 
of the exhibits of ranking provided by various church R. A.'s with the top award 
going to the Olive Chapel group. An inspiring talk was given by Mr. Vernon Sparrow 
of Mills Home. 

On January 23 the Brotherhood annual Ladies Nite hosted by First Church was, 
as usual, the highlight in associational activities. Mr. Roy Tunstall from Raleigh 
provided a spark of mirth among the diners. Mr. Lewis Rigsbee, R. A. leader for 
several past years, was recognized, and presented a bronze plaque for outstanding 
service. Mr. John Laverty provided piano accompaniment for the evening and the 
Rev. Wiley Oakley led the singing. The Braggtown Male Chorus brought renditions 
of several songs. One of the deepest touching testimonials, ever uttered, was provided 
through a devout sermon in the sanctuary, following the dinner program. The Rev. 
Carson Blanton, superintendent of a mission in Roanoke Rapids, N. C, brought the 
well received message from God. 

January 28 was observed as Baptist Men's Day in several churches with men in 
charge of all church activities. Grey Stone conducted a full week of laymen's ser- 
vices for revival. May the Good Lord send more of this revival spirit through the 
men. 

A Brotherhood forum was held at Yates Camp, April 4 with hambuger dutch 
supper. The evening was given to questions fired at an associational officers' panel. 
The evening was pleasant and enlightening. The delegates returned to their churches 
better informed Baptist men. 

The first Friday in May was the occasion of an R. A. Campout at Yates Camp. 
The session on Friday evening was conducted by Mr. Lewis Rigsbee, and on Saturday 
morning Rev. Robert Watson was in charge. The occasion was instructional and 
educational, and all had a good time outdoors. 

A weekend R. A. camp at Caraway was enjoyed by all attending in May. 

The Man-Boy Rally, planned for July 20 at Bethesda was postponed until Septem- 
ber 9 and hosted by Durham Memorial. The outdoor games and activities were led 
by Mr. Jim Barringer, new associational R. A. Leader. The hot-dog supper was

Twentieth Annual Session 



prepared by Mr. Aubrey Wheeler. We were indeed fortunate to have Dr. Eugene 
Grace, eye surgeon, show his slides of a month's medical mission in Ghana, Africa. 

The August 23 Pioneer Campout was enlarged in plan to include both Pioneers 
and Crusaders and moved to September 6 at Lake Unity. Each group set up its own 
camp-site, for which judging was made Saturday morning, with top rating going by 
award to Guess Road, led by Mr. Ray Hertzog, associate R. A. Leader for the new 
year, with second rating received by Gorman, led by the Rev. Grady Long. Instruc- 
tional groups were formed by Ray Hertzog, and Lewis Rigsbee, on campcraft. The 
speaker for the evening, Mr. Edgar Wyatt, from First Church, Raleigh, told of his 
"Crusade of The Americas" guided tour through South America, traveling altogether 
by air. It was a true missionary revelation of The Lord. 

The Brotherhood Workshop was hosted by Westwood on Sept. 30, Oct. 1 with 
inspirational messages followed by spirited discussions of the new year's missionary- 
Brotherhood activities. We're most thankful to the Westwood Brotherhood for their 
hearty reception. 

We're heading into a great new year for the Lord. 

Thank you for the part you shall play in this work!

REPORT OF THE MUSIC COUNCIL 

The Music Council met six times during the past season in executive meetings to 
plan the work of the council for the season. 

On Sunday afternoon, October 15, 1967, the seventh annual Yates Association 
Hymn Sing was held at Edgemont Baptist Church. Choirs from Guess Road, Home- 
stead Heights, Olive Chapel, Grey Stone, and Edgemont participated. Hymns used 
were favorites of the folk in Yates Association — chosen by a poll taken in as many 
churches as would respond. Those who attended found it most inspiring and enjoy- 
able. 

A choir was used for the opening of each session (Tuesday morning, Tuesday 
afternoon, and Wednesday morning) of the 1967 Annual Associational meeting in 
October. This group did a fine job, and we plan to have a similar choir this year. 

The Annual Choral Clinic was held at Angier Avenue Church on February 19. 
About 60 people from 19 churches attended. Guest leader for this clinic was Charles 
Gatwood of the state convention staff. 

An area choral clinic, led by members of the Music Council, was held at Mt. 
Pisgah Baptist Church on March 11, with about 45 present. Twenty of these were 
from Mt. Pisgah, and 17 from Olive Chapel. This was an excellent clinic. Another 
clinic was held at Faith Church on March 25, with over 20 present from Faith and 
Olive Branch combined — the majority from Faith Church. This too was led by 
members of the Music Council. 

One of the council members, Dave Pierceall, led a very fine and large Associa- 
tional Youth Choir in the Jim Vaus Evangelistic Rally at First Baptist Church on 
May 7. There were about 200 in this choir, and well over 1,000 attended the Rally. 

As this report is being prepared, the Music Council is making final plans for the 
1968 Hymn Sing, the 1968 annual meeting (choir for this mtg.), and the 1969 Choral 
Clinic. We would like to state again that we, the members of the Yates Association 
Music Council, stand ready to give assistance to any church of the association, as 
time, opportunity, and ability permit. Call on us, and we assure you that we will 
help in any way we can.

REPORT OF THE LIBRARY COMMITTEE 

The Library Committee held a one night workshop at Westwood Baptist Church 
in Durham, on April 30. Copies of the Church Library Development Plan were 
distributed to those present and parts of the plan were discussed. Filmstrips on the 
Dewey Decimal System and Card Catalog were shown. The emphasis was placed on 
processing and organization of books and other library materials. 

During the year additional books have been catalogued and placed in the As- 
sociational Library.

REPORT OF THE EVANGELISM COMMITTEE 

"CHRIST THE ONLY HOPE" will be the resounding theme throughout the 
Western Hemisphere in 1969 during the Crusade of the Americas. This year, 1968, 
has been a year of preparation for the crusade. 

On May 7, approximately 1,600 persons attended our Associational Evangelism 
Rally, as Jim Vaus from Hellgate Station in New York challenged our hearts, declar- 
ing what Christ can do. Again this Fall, on September 24, God moved during the 
Major Metropolitan Evangelism Rally. From the pulpits of our individual churches 
has also come the cry to pray and join together in this thrust to reach people for 
Christ during the Crusade of the Americas. 

To move with God this year and next means that we must be dihgent in search- 
ing the scriptures and that we must walk daily with God in the fellowship of prayer. 
This done faithfully and successfully day by day across the weeks and months will 
bring individuals and churches into vital relationship with God. 

It is urgently important that every church be confronted with the opportunity and 
responsibihty of participating with other Baptists in prayerful concern for a Spiritual 
awakening. The date for this simultaneous out-reach and revival in the Yates Baptist 
Association is March 16-30. Messengers of this Association are therefore urged to 
see that their church rightly faces this challenge. 

For details on the Crusade consult the GUIDE BOOK FOR BAPTISTS OF

REPORT OF THE INSTITUTIONAL COMMITTEE 

It is the Heart-Throb of the Institutional Committee to inform our people in 
the Yates Baptist Association. We are indeed proud of our three Institutions — The 
Children's Homes, The Homes for the Aging and the Baptist Hospital. 

In the busy world in which we live today it is difficult to communicate one to 
another. This committee is young but we are making progress in getting information 
to our people. When people are informed they are responsive. Our hearts are made 
happy because of the loving spirit of responding to the needs of our Baptist friends. 

"In as much as you have done it unto the least of these my brethern, ye have 
done it unto me."

Twentieth Annual Session 



REPORT OF THE FELLOWSHIP COMMITTEE 

Today one of the acute concerns of our denomination is the future of the 
ministry. What some of the other denominations have already experienced we are 
beginning to feel — a shortage of men for the pastoral ministry. In recent years the 
number of men entering the ministry has declined while the number of our churches 
has increased. Death and retirement further deplete the ranks. Each year we lose 
men in the ministry to secular employment and some pastors enter other phases of 
religious or denominational work. Others are dismissed by their churches and never 
relocate. Still others join other denominations. 

The picture is further complicated by the fact that many pastors are unhappy 
with their churches and many churches are unhappy with their ministers. In some 
congregations there is a great deal of tension generated by misunderstandings be- 
tween the pastor and lay leaders in the church. 

The Fellowship Committee has been charged by the Association to "promote a 
good relationship between pastors and churches." In connection with this responsibi- 
lity the committee undertook a survey and study of the relationship between pastors 
and churches with the help of the Deacons Committee. The results of this survey 
have been published and discussed at an associational deacons' rally as well as at 
an associational ministers' meeting. Along with this paper the Committee has also 
made available to churches in the Association three denominational publications 
about pastors' salaries. A sheet about how your pastor can help you and how 
you can help him has been distributed. 

The Committee has also published a pamphlet about the nature of its work and 
how it can be of help to the churches when seeking to call a pastor, when reviewing 
pastoral arrangements, and when the church's fellowship is endangered. Our com- 
mittee stands ready to help any church or pastor who calls upon us in a time of need. 

Respectfully submitted, 
B. E. White, Jr., Chairman 

REPORT OF THE STUDENT WORK COMMITTEE 

This committee reports the following activities for the year 1967-68: 

1. On November 12, 1967 we conducted a service of institution for Jack Halsell and 
Jim Greene as Baptist chaplains at UNC-CH and Duke respectively. 

2. On November 21, 1967 we had an orientation meeting. 

3. On December 1, 1967 we met with the Duke BSU and shared a program and 
evening with them. 

4. On March 8, 1968 we met with the UNC-CH BSU and shared a program and 
evening with them. 

5. On April 5-7, 1968 we shared in the sponsorship of a visit to Durham by Dr. 
Josef Nordenhaug, Executive Sec. of the Baptist World Alliance. During this visit 
we sponsored a student open forum with Dr. Nordenhaug and a general meeting 
at the First Baptist Church with an address by Dr. Nordenhaug. 

6. On April 17, 1968 we participated in a denominational dialogue on campus 
ministries. Denominational representatives present and participating were Dr. 
Porter Routh of the SBC Executive Committee, Dr. D. P. Brooks of the SBC 
Sunday School Board, and Dr. Nathan Brooks of the N. C. Baptist State Con- 
vention. 

During this year Mr. James Greene left the Duke BSU office to serve as state 
secretary of student work. The Reverend David May has been elected to replace him 
as Baptist Chaplain to Students on the Duke Campus.

This committee senses a continuing need to interpret campus ministry to our 
churches, and to strengthen the ties of relationship and involvement betvi^een our 
churches and our campus ministry programs. We urge this association and the 
participating churches to continue strong and active support of the campus ministry 
at the universities in our area and across the state. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Sherrill Stevens, Chairman 

REPORT ON THE BIBLICAL RECORDER 

Baptists of North Carolina are exceedingly fortunate in having a denominational 
periodical that reflects an awareness of and concern for the role of the Church in 
these crucial times in which we live. The Biblical Recorder which was founded in 
1833 has long been a respected journal providing a valuable source of information 
about North Carolina Baptists — their churches, institutions and missions. 

In recent years the Recorder under the leadership of J. Marse Grant has been 
particularly noteworthy in assisting its readers in relating Christian faith to the 
critical problems of our society. This able and dedicated editor has been courageous 
in pointing out to Baptists that the Church must be at the forefront in confronting 
evil, eliminating prejudice and injustice and increasing understanding among people 
of all circumstances. While keeping its readers well informed about Baptist activities 
and problems, the Recorder has also published important news concerning fellow 
Christians of other groups and denominations. 

In short the Biblical Recorder is an important part of the Christian literature of 
every Baptist congregation. Local churches should strive to make it available to 
every church family, preferably by having it mailed to their homes. At a very 
minimum, churches should send the Recorder to their officers, deacons and others m 
responsible positions of leadership. Churches that provide this valuable service to 
their members are unquestionably in a more favorable position to strengthen their 
ministry and mission. 

Church members who read the Recorder gain much information not readily avail- 
able elsewhere about what is going on among Baptists and other Christians. They 
also obtain insights as to what is being done — or perhaps neglected — in important 
areas of our cooperative effort at the convention levels. Recorder readers find de- 
tailed information about Baptist-supported colleges, hospitals, orphanages, homes for 
the aging and other ministeries. They keep abreast of the issues and various opinions 
on issues that come before our conventions or that confront us constantly in local 
communities. Information on workshops, seminars and other forums are often pub- 
licized in advance and subsequently reported on for the benefit of readers. Through 
the editorial page, readers will be stimulated to think carefully through the problems 
of our local and national life and become increasingly aware of the role that Chris- 
tians and churches must undertake in our society. 

As church members become better informed and more aware of the needs of 
church and denomination, they are more likely to reflect their concern by greater 
financial support of the church. Churches that have felt they could not afford to send 
the Recorder to their members would do well to investigate the low cost involved. 
Every pastor has been provided information on the various plans available to 
churches, but the Yates Association office and the Recorder office in Raleigh will be 
glad to furnish such information upon request. Currently subscriptions to the 
Recorder by churches in the Yates Association are as follows:

REPORT OF CITY AND METROPOLITAN 
MISSIONS STUDY COMMITTEE 

This is our second report to the Association. Again it is a progress "report." In 
spite of the fact that we have increased our meetings to twice monthly, we have not 
been able to formulate a "complete report" as we were requested to do. The deeper 
our studies have taken us, the deeper we have found we have had to go. It must be 
borne in mind that we are dealing with the very nature and character of an intricate 
organization. Varied concepts have to be examined and harmonized. There is no 
pattern to follow. We are "explorers," ploughing forth, blazing trails in a new and 
unchartered area. This is time-consuming and progress is often slow. 

We have made progress, we are happy to report. The research into the nature 
and character of the city of Durham has been completed. Copies of this report are 
in the Associational office, the State Convention office, and the office of the Home 
Missions Board. These were made available through the courtesy of the City and 
Metropolitan Missions Department of our Baptist State Convention, the Reverend 
Ernest Upchurch, secretary. The completion of this study has revealed a further 
need to select certain sections of the city and make similar depth studies of them. 
We cannot report at this time when such studies will be undertaken. It is our inten- 
tion to pursue this as vigorously and as expeditiously as possible. 

Regarding our objective: Over a year ago we became aware of the fact that God 
is placing the churches in Durham in a new setting — a rapidly growing urban area. 
We soon came to realize that our Associational structure originated in the frontier 
age when the character of nearly all of our churches was rural. The needs of our 
churches, as well as the needs of our community were greatly different then from 
what they are now. There is general agreement among the committeemen that our 
present Associational structure doesn't lend itself to mission. Therefore, we have 
given oiu-selves to an attempt at depth study into the nature and mission of an as- 
sociation of churches in the hope of discovering better ways of reaching the people 
of our area with the message and ministry of the churches. We express our objec- 
tive in the following way: "to propose to the Association an organization and a 
program for the implementation of an associational Christian mission in this 
urban setting." 

Regarding our method of study: We have called in a number of "resource per- 
sons" who have shared with us, from their vantage points, their knowledge and under- 
standing of areas of need. At other times we have engaged in debate among our- 
selves, or composed a "buzz group" for the purpose of bringing forth creative ideas. 

Regarding our present position: We have arrived at some general conclusion, 
although we have no definite proposals to make. Like most everybody else in the 
world, we find it very easy to tell you what we're against but it's mighty hard to tell 
you what we're for. However, we do have some positive thoughts to share. For one 
thing, we believe the Association should be viewed in a new light. Heretofore, it has 
been looked upon as the "servant" of the churches, existing for the purpose of pro- 
moting and helping to strengthen the programs that are going on in the churches. In 
other words, it has existed primarily for the benefit of the churches. We feel that 
it should continue to serve the churches where needed, but that it should be so 
structured that it will become an instrument through which the churches serve the 
world. As we now exist every church tries to do the same thing. We feel the As- 
sociation should become an instrument through which the churches, working together, 
can pursue mission objectives that they cannot pursue working along. We believe 
more emphasis should be placed on "mission" and less emphasis on church pro- 
motion. In fact the trend is already in this direction. The Association is having 
fewer promotional meetings and has seen the need for the office of "Associational 



46 



Twentieth Annual Session 



Minister in Charge of Juvenile and Adult Rehabilitation." It was the recognition 
of this need that led this Committee in September to recommend to the Finance 
Committee that some support for this ministry be carried in the 1969 Associational 
budget. 

As indicated above, we recognize that our thinking represents a new departure in 
Associational Missions. But however revolutionary it may appear to be, we believe 
that it is not only practical and needful, but it is also Scriptural. 

The most radical conclusion that we have reached is that our Associational 
organization needs to be re-structured. The present structure has served its day well. 
Parts of the present structure need to be retained, parts retired, and new features 
need to be added. If our Association is going to be a potent force in the hands of 
the churches reaching our urban community for Christ, it must be structured to meet 
the needs we face today and will face tomorrow. 

While we do not have an organizational form in the concrete to suggest at this 
time, we do have some ideas. It is this end that we will be working in the coming 
year; that of creating a proposed structure for an associational missions program in 
our "urbanizing" situation. As indicated, many of our churches will continue to look 
to the Association for help and strength for local needs. This fact will not be over- 
looked. 

The area in which this Committee works will continue to involve our Superinten- 
dent of Missions in much time-consuming attention. Therefore: 

We Recommend that the Associational Superintendent of Missions continue to 
make the work of the City and Metropolitan Missions Study Committee a major 
focus of his office. 

We Further Recommend that associational organizations and committees be 
requested to assume an increasing number of responsibilities heretofore carried on 
by the Superintendent of Missions. 

Russell Barbee, Chairman 

REPORT OF THE CHRISTIAN SOCIAL 
MINISTRIES COMMITTEE 

The Christian Social Ministries Committee was formed in 1967 as an action 
committee. Its duties are: to identify needs in the association in the areas of il- 
literacy, alcoholism and narcotic addiction, mental health, juvenile delinquency, 
unwed mothers, the economically disadvantaged; to encourage churches to provide 
ministries to meet these needs; to enlist and offer training for those with interest in 
these areas. 

The committee on April 9, 1968 identified the general area of juvenile/adult 
rehabilitation as the field which claims its immediate attention. With the approval 
of the association and financial help from the Baptist State Convention, Yates As- 
sociation funds and Baptist laymen and churches we were able to employ Mr. Boyce 
Kimball to help us with an exploratory project for 7 months. Mr. Kimball is an 
ordained minister and is a senior at Southeastern Seminary at Wake Forest. His help 
has been invaluable. He and Mr. Hubert Mumford, Yates Baptist Association Mis- 
sionary, have made it possible for us to operate as a committee. They have enabled 
us to crystallize in our minds a ministry for Yates Association. 

Our premise for action as Christians is that we must expose the ever present 
Christ. We help men be free from servitude to false powers and false idols. 

All kinds of service are embodiments of the Gospel; they are signs and means. 
It is not through these acts of service that God established His Kingdom. Rather 
these acts witness to its present reality.

The Christian Social Ministries Committee sponsored a workshop on alcoholism 
at Grace Baptist Church on Friday, October 11, 1968. The panel discussion "Who 
Is An Alcoholic?" was led by Mr. Fred Reid, Chaplain at Memorial Hospital in 
Chapel Hill. Dr. Thomas Bland, Professor at Southeastern Seminary, and Dr. Peter 
Holden gave professional information on who the alcoholic is from the sociological, 
theological and psysiological and physchological side of man. Tapes were made of 
these presentations. 

At the workshop Mr. Kimball introduced us to the personnel of the penal, legal, 
social, medical institutions of our community who already work with the alcoholic. 
This gave us insight as to what is needed from us. 

Dr. Sherrill Stevens presented a paper on the "Nature of the Church's ministry 
to the Alcoholic." This helped clear the air and is available for study. 

Because we had discussion and comments from most everyone present, we feel, 
after evaluating the workshop, that there are some special ministries available for 
Yates Association members because we are proclaimed servants of God. Some of 
these special ministries for alcoholic which we would like to encourage are: 

1. Pastoral counselling and follow up. 

2. Providing educational opportunities for ministers and laymen (special school 
at Butner, Baptist Hospital, and etc.). 

3. Upgrading Flynn Home 

4. Establishing boarding house for women. 

5. Influencing those in court system to use the mandatory sentence to the 
Alcoholic Rehabilitation Center, Butner, N. C. 

6. Establish therapy groups in churches. 

7. Encourage churches to work with social agencies more closely. 

8. Recognize families of alcoholics with love and acceptance, nurture and support 
them. 

We should aim to keep flexible enough to enable us to go the extra mile that 
legal technicalities keep the other agencies from doing. The most important 
ingredient which we have to offer is love and concern. 

We therefore recommend that Yates Association employ an associational minister 
in charge of juvenile and adult rehabilitation on a permanent basis, emphasizing the 
ministry with the alcoholics, drug addicts and ex-prisoner and their families. This 
ministry would include pastoral counselling and referral, training for voluntary per- 
sonnel, and general encouragement to churches to undertake special ministries to the 
unfortunates.

REPORT OF THE FOUNDATION COMMITTEE 

Your committee has had only one meeting this year. Plans were made at this 
meeting to have a new brochure printed to be used in publicizing the Foundation. 
After some investigation, we found that the State Foundation had two pieces of ef- 
fective literature that we could make use of. We plan to order and stamp the as- 
sociational name on the folders for distribution. The need is for our people to realize 



48

that they can remember our Baptist work through the Foundation. Your ideas on 
how this can be accomphshed will be most appreciated.

REPORT OF STEWARDSHIP AND COOPERATIVE PROGRAM 

What the budget is to the local church, the Cooperative Program is to the 
denomination. It is support for all missionary causes at home and abroad — it's preach- 
ing the gospel — it's healing in the name of Jesus through hospitals and clinics every- 
where — it's teaching and training Christian leaders for all the great tasks of Kingdom 
endeavor. 

As people worship with tithes and offerings Sunday by Sunday and as our churches 
channel a worthy part of their income through the Cooperative Program, we enter 
into partnership with God and one another in obedience to the command, "Go . . . 
preach . . . teach . . .!" 

Let us resolve to pray earnestly for all Kingdom work through the Cooperative 
Program and support our prayers with sacrificial giving of self and substance. The 
Yates Association had 100% of its churches giving through the Cooperative Program 
during the calendar year, 1967, according to Convention records. 

A new Eight Day Stewardship Program will be available from the Stewardship 
Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention on April 1. It will suggest visitation 
of every family in the church by the deacons, prayer by every church member, 
and a Weekend Stewardship Revival. Many of the pilot churches have found this 
an effective way to increase giving and pledge the church's budget. 

In 1967-68 our association gave $194,523 for world missions through the Co- 
operative Program in comparison with $188,511 in 1966-67 and $183,713 in 
1965-66. 

We urge each church: 

(1) to plan, vigorously promote, and subscribe a worthy budget; 

(2) to have a special prayer for Cooperative Program causes during each church 
service in October; 

(3) to give regularly, a worthy percentage of each offering plate dollar through the 
Cooperative Program.

REPORT ON BAPTIST CHILDREN'S HOMES OF 
NORTH CAROLINA, INC. 

North Carolina Baptists and other friends of the Children's Homes are making 
possible a Christian way of Hfe for hundreds of boys and girls who otherwise would 
be denied many of life's best opportunities. More than 1300 children were assisted in 
some type of service during the past year. 

All associated with the Children's Homes are deeply grateful for every type of 
support. Cooperative Program income through the churches is increasingly important. 
Last year's Thanksgiving offering was the largest ever — approaching $325,000. Special 
gifts, bequests through wills and estate planning provide much needed income and 
wonderful opportunities to invest in the lives of children and young people. 

Encouraging progress is being made in the capital funds campaign to build a 
home for children in Western North Carolina in Haywood County between Waynes- 
ville and Clyde. It is hoped that construction can begin in early 1969. The Western 
Home, in addition to providing group care, will strengthen all types of services now 
being provided children and their families in the Western area. 

Four family-style cottages have been constructed and dedicated during the past 
year — two at Mills Home and two at Kennedy Home. Two additional cottages will 
be constructed at Mills Home during the coming year. Funds for these buildings 
have come from bequests through estate planning by friends of neglected and 
dependent children. 

The number of good Christian Homes for the care of foster children is growing. 
More are needed in all sections of the state. Foster homes serve children of all ages 
and are particularly helpful for some who have special needs. Couples with or with- 
out children of their own, who have an abundance of love, find this to be a chal- 
lenging and rewarding opportunity for Christian service. 

Members of the Board of Trustees and members of the staff of the Homes are 
dedicated to a program of child care that will merit the undivided loyalty and support 
of our people and that will be worthy of the blessings of our Lord. Let us covenant 
with them to do OUR PART! 

Our associaiion gave $14,987 to the Baptist Children's Homes last year in 
comparison vdth $15,561 in 1967 and $15,315 in 1966.

REPORT ON BAPTIST HOMES FOR THE AGING 

This past year has been one of the most eventful in the history of our Homes for 
the Aging. Of primary significance was the opening of the Yanceyville Home on 
November 1, 1967, and dedicatory services on April 25, 1968, with Governor Dan K. 
Moore as the principal speaker. 

When the Yanceyville Home, accommodating 31 residents, is filled to capacity, 
the number living in all of our Homes will reach 200. Residents at Yanceyville, 
Resthaven, the Albemarle Home, the Hayes Home, the Hamilton Home, and the 
Infirmary constitute a large and ever-growing family of elderly people. 

The waiting list for admission to our Homes continues to grow. The opening 
of the Yanceyville Home has relieved, to some extent, the pressure on this waiting 
list, and persons are encouraged to make application. 

Baptists of North Carolina can be grateful for their record in ministering to the 
residents in their five Homes for the Aging. Recent reports reveal that our Baptist 
Homes for the Aging are giving more financial assistance to their needy aging than 



52 Twentieth Annual Session 



any other denominational Home in North Carohna. About 85% of the residents 
receive assistance through the love gifts of N. C. Baptists. These love gifts from our 
Baptist churches come from two main sources: (1) The Special Day Offering, 
received on the 3rd Sunday of February each year, 22Vi%, and (2) The Cooperative 
Program, \2V2% . Gifts for 1967 through these two sources were at an all time high 
and amounted to around $200,000. Although the 1968 Special Day Offering is re- 
flecting some increase, our Baptist Homes cannot be maintained at their present 
level much longer unless these two vital sources of income are increased consider- 
ably. 

More and more the ministry of the Homes is being extended beyond day to day 
care to local churches and communities. Experiences have been shared through World 
Missions Conferences, Family Life Conferences, High School classes in Family 
Living, etc. 

Life among the residents in the Homes is most interesting. With an average age 
of 80 they sometimes amaze the attendants with their activity. We should be grateful 
to the Lord for the part we are able to have through our denomination. Our 
Convention had vision enough to plan for the aging, and is moving forward in meet- 
ing their needs.

REPORT OF ORDINATIONS COMMITTEE 

The Ordinations Committee received only one request this past year. Mr. Billy 
Ray Jordan was examined and recommended for the ordination by our committee. 

It has been suggested that in the future any candidate examined by the committee 
submit a paper expressing his views and that such paper be read by the candidate 
before the committee begins their examination. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Malbert Smith, Jr., Chairman

REPORT ON BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

Nineteen hundred sixty seven-sixty eight represents a full year at our Baptist 
Hospital with more than 30,000 sick people receiving medical help and Christian 



Yates Baptist Association 



53 



ministry, and more than 165,000 visiting the clinics of the hospital. In addition, over 
700 persons are receiving training in the various fields of medical care and Christian 
service, and a vast amount of medical research is being done in the causes and treat- 
ments of diseases. 

The Development Program of our Medical Center is progressing on schedule. 
The new power plant is scheduled to go into operation in October, and the 
paramedical school building by next April. It will provide the best in teaching 
facilities and make it possible to double the enrollment of our nine schools and 
even to add new schools. The Medical School addition will be ready by September, 
1969, and will allow that school to enlarge by 35%. Contracts are due to be let in 
October for the new patient building, which will be completed in 1971. This build- 
ing and the remodeling of the oldest part of the present plant will provide more than 
200 new patient beds and greatly enlarge office space and facilities for examinations 
and treatment of patients. 

The cost of this large Development Program is being provided by interested indi- 
viduals, corporations, foundations and government agencies, which recognize the 
valuable service our Medical Center is rendering and the urgent need for greatly en- 
larging these services. 

But 1967-68 has been a very difficult year financially, and our hospital has been 
forced to make important changes in its financial policies. In the face of mounting 
costs, increasing needs of people, the hospital has had a growing deficit. The amount 
of the free service now will have to be governed by the amount of the Mother's Day 
Fund. A patient's hospital bill will be estimated in advance, hospital insurance 
deducted, and the balance paid before the patient is admitted unless he is certified 
by his county welfare department or some other agency. The Mother's Day Fund 
will be used, as it has been, to pay the difference between the amount paid by the 
certifying agency and the total cost. 

The great concern at our Baptist Hospital is for the patients who must have 
specialized care plus financial assistance. But the hospital cannot continue to operate 
without the money to cover the cost. We believe the great majority of our people 
will understand and give their full cooperation. The Mother's Day Offering will need 
to be increased greatly if our hospital is to fulfill its mission. We want to assure 
our hospital that it can depend upon us in full measure. 

Respectfully submitted, 

H. L. Ferguson, Representative 

REPORT OF GAMP COMMITTEE 

Our main projects for the year were the erection of a bath house in the tent area 
and an outdoor chapel in the general area of the Nichols-Maddry Lodge. The bath- 
house provides four cold-water showers and the chapel will seat nearly 200 people. 
Other improvements include the installation of two 1,000-gal. tanks, one for the 
bath houses and one for the lodge. 

With these two projects completed, thus exhausting the funds from the sale of 
bonds, we may look forward to a greater use of the camp and its facilities next 
summer. 

All during the year churches have been using all or part of the facilities of the 
camp week after week. With the electric heat in the lodge groups could "camp" 
during the winter. 

Respectfully submitted, 
George Love, Chairman

Twentieth Annual Session 



REPORT OF DEACON'S COMMITTEE 

On November 28, 1967, a rally was held at Calvary Church with an emphasis on 
"The Pastor-Church Relationship." Speaker for the occasion was J. Marse Grant, 
editor of the Biblical Recorder, state paper of our Baptist State Convention. 

For weeks the associational Fellowship Committee had circulated questionnaires 
among the hundreds of deacons in our churches. The results were tabulated and Mr. 
Grant spoke to the results. 

On May 21, 1968, highlights of the recent Home Missions study book, "Trumpets 
in Dixie" were presented at Immanuel Church by our Superintendent of Missions by 
special request. He used the overhead projector for this presentation. 

On November 26 another Deacons' Rally will be held at Yates Church. With the 
coming "Crusade of the Americas" in mind this promises to be a fitting climax for 
this calendar year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Paul Burmahl, Chairman 

REPORT OF THE WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

The Woman's Missionary Union has stressed during the year the theme: "A 
Church Fulfilling Its Mission Through Ministry." A real inspiration to our work 
this year has been our watchword: "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the 
least of these ... ye have done it unto me." Matt. 25:40. 

Some of the highlights of a very rewarding year have been: 

1. "WMU and the Total Church Program" — a conference for our pastors was held 
simultaneously with the WMU Leadership Conferences at Yates Church on 
September 26, 1967. A special guest who led this informative, question and 
answer period was Miss Miriam Robinson, WMU Executive Secretary of North 
Carolina. There were 280 people who attended from 38 churches. Classes were 
provided for all local officers and leaders of the WMU in the churches. These 
conferences were led by the associational WMU officers. 

2. Mission study workshops were held for foreign and home missions for the pur- 
pose of aiding the teachers. These classes included Baptist Men, WMS, YWA, 
GA, and Sunbeam Bands. 

3. The Executive Board held regular quarterly meetings to plan, coordinate and 
evaluate the work of our churches. Without the dedication and cooperation of 
these women, our work would not have been successful. The local presidents 
were invited to the January board meeting at Watts Street Church. A special 
guest at this meeting was Rev. Hubert Mumford, Associational Superintendent 
of Missions, who spoke in behalf of the work of the WMU and the part it takes 
in the total program of the church and the association. There were 35 women 
present representing 25 churches. 

4. The annual WMU meeting was held on Thursday, April 18, at Durham Memorial 
Church, 5:30-8:45 p.m., with supper being served by the host Group III, Mrs. 
Elbert Murphrey, leader. Special guests were Miss Bernice Popham, N.C. Sun- 
beam Band Director, and Rev. John Poe, missionary to Brazil, Miss Popham 
presented in capsule form the plans for "WMU '68". A total of 308 from 45 
churches, including eight pastors, two visitors, one missionary, and 297 women, 
were present. 

5. A prayer retreat was held on June 15 at Sun Valley Ranch (home of Mr. & Mrs. 
Sam Dennis) with 23 present from 14 churches. Rev. Robert Winecoff, pastor 
of Mt. Hermon, led in a Bible study period. Mrs. W. C. Hall, prayer chairman, 
planned the inspirational retreat. 



Yates Baptist Association

6. Conferences at Ridgecrest and Raleigh were attended by members of the execu- 
tive board in order to train themselves to better assist the local churches. The 
president attended the State WMU meeting in Asheville in March. Also, it was 
her rare privilege to be invited to and attend a two-day conference at the 
Home Mission Board in Atlanta, Georgia, in June. Mr. Mumford and Mr. 
Aubrey Wheeler also attended this conference which was to study Associational 
Relationships in Mission Action. Only five associations in the Southern Baptist 
Convention were invited. Yates Association is honored to have been selected. 

7. August 27 at Braggtown Church, the Annual WMU Night was held. Emphasis 
was given to mission action as we observed the Week of Prayer for Associational 
Misions. The theme was "By Love Impelled," with Rev. Boyce Kimball speaking 
on his work with adult/juvenile rehabilitation in Yates Association. The 
featured speaker was Mrs. James P. Morgan, a clinical psychologist for N. C, 
who inspired all of us to be more concerned for others. There were 128 in at- 
tendance, representing 26 churches. 

8. The YWA held four quarterly meetings with increased attendance and interest 
a "first" for this group of young women was a "dutch" dinner meeting at the 
Tip Top Fish House in February with 81 attending from 15 churches (during 
YWA Focus Week). The week came to a climax with the State YWA Conven- 
tion at Temple Church on February 16-17. Upon resignation of Mrs. J. A. 
Fogleman, Mrs. Anthony Gurganus completed her term as Director. A citation 
recognition service was held at Lowe's Grove Church during the year. 

9. The GAs also held four quarterly meetings with increased attendance. One of 
the highlights of this year was the GA Banquet on May 17 at Guess Road 
Church during GA Focus Week with 435 attending from 25 churches. Guest 
speaker was Miss Susan Grant, a past president. She led the girls, their coun- 
selors, and guests in group singing and gave an inspirational message. Numerous 
Ga Coronation services were held throughout the association with Mrs. W. M. 
Blalock, associational GA Director, participating in many of them. 

10. The Sunbeam Day Camp for 8-year-olds was held for the second consecutive 
year at Yates Camp on July 20. There were 59 who attended. The theme for 
the day was the "Crusade of the Americas." Various countries were studied in 
the units with nature study, Bible study, and other activities planned in co- 
ordination with this theme. Bag lunches were enjoyed and the day was climaxed 
by Rev. Ned Mathews who related his experiences (via slides) in Colombia, 
South America, and Rev. James Staples who led in group singing at the close 
of the camp. These 8-year-olds enjoyed a day of fun, food, fellowship and 
inspiration that will not soon be forgotten. 

1 1 . ThQ response of the churches to our mission action project at Murdoch Center 
has been a rich experience for all. Those who have planned for the program and 
those who received the visits are very appreciative for your reception of the 
new program. More people have been involved than ever before.

Due to the new plans for Woman's Missionary Union for 1968, the president and 
other associational board members have visited in many of our churches in order to 
interpret and assist them when we were needed. The joy of serving comes only as we 
serve our Lord by helping others to know how to serve Him better. It has been our 
privilege during this year to meet many new friends through this individual contact 
with our churches. 

The work of WMU will continue to grow in quality as long as there are women 
who will consider their tasks a joy and rare honor as they serve our Lord and 
Saviour Jesus Christ. We shall long remember the many wonderful opportunities this 
place of service has afforded each of us. May all of us, men and women alike, 
remember that Jesus said: "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of 
these, my brethren, ye have done it unto me."

TWENTIETH ANNUAL MEETING— YATES W.M.U. 
April 18, 1968 

The 20th Annual Session of the Yates Associational W.M.U. was held on April 
18, 1968 at Durham Memorial Baptist Church with Mrs. Carlton O. Couch, Presi- 
dent, Presiding. The theme of the meeting was "Love in Action." 

Mrs. Robert Helms, with Mrs. A. Clyde Ferrell at the Organ, led in singing 
"Great Redeemer We Adore Thee." The invocation was given by Rev. Vernon Mc- 
Daniel, Pastor of Durham Memorial Baptist Church. 

Mrs. Millard Page, President of Durham Memorial W.M.U. extended a cordial 
welcome to the group and Mrs. Mary Whaley responded. 

Mrs. Hubert Mumford, Secretary of the State W.M.U. and former Associational 
W.M.U. President, brought a very inspiring devotion centered around Mark 12:30. 
She stated that the most important thing in life is our attitude toward God and that 
today we must meet God on a deeper level than ever before and that we might carry 
this word to others. We must stay in rhythm of love guided by the purpose of 
Christ. The devotion was closed with a very pertinent question "How will we show 
our love to God?" followed by prayer. 

Mrs. Robert Helms of Homestead Heights sang "I Saw A Man," accompanied by 
Mrs. A. Clyde Ferrell. 

Mrs. Carlton O. Couch, President, recognized the Pastors and visitors. 

Miss Bernice Popham, State Sunbeam Band Director, presented W.M.U. '68. 
She stated that these new plans were simplicity and flexibility, also that the basic 
purpose had not been changed but hoped to be met in a more simple way. 

A very inspirational playlet "Me-In Mission Action" was presented by the Angier 
Avenue Youth. 

Mr. Claiborne Ross, Associational Brotherhood President, closed the first session 
with Prayer and offered thanks for the meal. Supper was served by Group III, Mrs. 
Lydia Murphrey, Leader.

The evening session was opened by singing "Where Cross the Crowded Ways of 
Life." The devotional and prayer was led by Rev. Anthony Gurganus, Pastor of 
Calvary Baptist Church, His devotional was centered around Mark 12:30. "Love 
the Lord thy God with all thy heart." We can do all things through Christ. Too often 
we substitute things, or material things in place of Christ. Life comes only when we 
as individuals are joined together with Christ who can control our lives if we will but 
surrender our all — May our devotion always be placed in the hands of Christ. 

Mrs. Louise Hall, Prayer Chairman, led in the Call to Prayer remembering the 
missionaries. 

Mrs. H. W. Pickett, and Mrs. V. A. Shore from Cresset Baptist Church, sang 
"Only One Plan," accompained by Mrs. A. Clyde Ferrell.

1968 in the amount of $1,073.00, which was approved. 

Mrs. J. E. Strawbridge, chairman of the Resolutions Committee presented the 
following resolutions: 

It is recorded that in St. Mary's Church in Cambridge, England, several hassocks 
in a pew were embroided with the words, "Think and Thank." As we think of the 
experience of the hours we have spent together in this the twentieth annual session of

Twentieth Annual Session 



Mrs. W, J. Broadwell Program Chairman of the Association introduced Mr. John 
A. Poe, a missionary to Brazil — Appointed by the Foreign Mission Board in 1956 — 
He works in the field of Evangelism and Religious Education. Mr. Poe spoke on 
"Love in Action," using a scripture passage from 1 John 4:19-20, 21. He stated that 
people are in need of living and that everybody needs just a little bit of love and at- 
tention. He stressed that we are Ambassadors for Christ if we are in Christ, We are 
to bring those out of harmony back together. Nothing since time has found anything 
stronger than love. How can we send our missionaries to preach to those with other 
color than white when we back home do not love our brother? Can we hear our 
brother crying out today? Who is your brother? Christ is calling tonight, to go and 
to witness to the uttermost parts of the world. 

The session was closed with a Hymn of Dedication "When I Survey the Wondrous 
Cross" followed by the benediction given by Rev. Hubert Mumford, Yates Associa- 
tional Missionary.

REPORT OF AUDIO-VISUAL COMMITTEE 

We are proud to report the purchase of a record player with extension speaker, 
the motion picture projector used in the CAVE plan with several of our churches for 
several years, and another filmstrip projector. 

Twenty separate tapes have been made from records on hand to give churches an 
option in recordings. Progress has been made in bringing the associational catalog up 
to date, and our tape recorder has been modified to take an extension speaker. 

Our audio-visual equipment now includes 2 motion picture projectors, 2 filmstrip 
projectors, 2 screens, 1 portable overhead projector, 1 tape recorder, 1 record player, 
1 magnajector, 1 easel, various extension cords and other accessories. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Floyd Rhodes, Chairman 

REPORT OF ASSOCIATIONAL BOARD 

The association has conducted its business in six meetings of the associational 
Board. The board meetings were held at Angier Avenue, November 21, 1967; Home- 
stead Heights, January 16; Holloway Street, February 13; Fieldcrest, May 14; Park- 
wood, September 10; and Rose of Sharon, October 22. 

Among the actions taken in the board meetings were several of importance. 

1. At Angier Avenue the Finance Committee recommended that we apply to the 
State Convention for $2,500 for each of two church sites. 

2. The Missions Committee recommended that the larger churches sponsor a mis- 
sion church as a fast means of church expansion in the association. 

3. At Homestead Heights it was decided to move the regular meeting of the associa- 
tional board heretofore held in January to February when the churches would 
have had time to complete their budgets. 

4. The Missions Committee reported at Holloway Street that the association had 
needed a church to assume the financial responsibility for the site at the inter- 
section of Sparger and Cole Mill Roads, acquired in 1967. The committee an- 
nounced that Grey Stone had appropriated $5,000 in their budget for this purpose. 

5. At Fieldcrest the Christian Social Ministries Committee requested that Boyce 
Kimball be employed as an exploratory project in a referral or liaison capacity 



Yates Baptist Association 



61 



with the Welfare Department, courts and social institutions through September, 
working especially with alcoholics and delinquents of the community. 

6. The Evangelism Committee was recognized for a good job in setting up and 
promoting the "Jim Vaus Meeting." 

7. At Parkwood the Rev. Boyce Kimball was recognized for his outstanding work 
with alcoholics in our pilot program sponsored by the State Convention and the 
association during the summer of 1968. 

8. At Rose of Sharon the board approved the purchase of a future site located on 
Garrett Road between 15-501 by-pass and old Chapel Hill road at a cost of 
$15,000. The association has on hand $6,000 for a down payment, and the board 
approved a request for a loan of $5,000 from the State Convention for the 
January 1969 payment. 

9. The board also approved requests to the State Convention for $2,500 on the Gar- 
rett Road property and $2,400 for office help for 1969. 

10. The request from Page Road Baptist Church to come under watchcare of the as- 
sociation was approved for presentation to the annual meeting. 

There were many other important matters discussed and approved by the board 
during the year which acts for the association between its annual meetings. We 
urge every church to take part in the discussions and decisions of the Board by 
sending their representatives. Each church is entitled to be represented by the 
pastor and two members. 

Churches can assure the success of the Lord's work in the association by partici- 
pating in the board meetings.

REPORT OF THE CHRISTIAN LIFE COMMITTEE 

On June 4, J 968, messengers to the Southern Baptist Convention in session at 
Houston, Texas, adopted "A Statement Concerning the Crisis in our Nation" which 
denominational leadership saw as a turning point and a new direction for Southern 
Baptists. In a call for action the Home Mission Board was assigned the task of 
"leadership in working with the Convention agencies concerned with the problems 
related to this crisis." The Christian Life Commission was charged with responsi- 
bility for the study and implementation of the crisis statement by local associations 
and congregations. It is in the spirit of the Houston Convention that the Association 
Christian Life Committee for 1967-68 has undertaken its work. 

Shortly after the Association met last year, a conference on the theme, "The 
Church's Ministry to the Disadvantaged Family," was held on November 2, at First 
Baptist Church, Durham. The conference was sponsored jointly by the Yates, New 
Hope, Cedar Grove, and County Line Associations. The speakers for the confer- 
ence were Dr. Gardner C. Taylor of Brooklyn, N.Y. and Dr. Warren T. Carr of 
Winston-Salem. 

In a number of meetings over the past several months the work of prior com- 
mittees has been considered and the committee has concluded that the Christian Life 
conferences held for the past three years have been worthwhile. Plans have been 
completed for a fourth conference to be held at Watts Street Baptist Church, Dur- 
ham, on Monday night, January 13, 1969, beginning at 7:30 P.M. The theme for 
the conference will be "The Local Church Responding to the Crisis in the Nation." 

At this year's Christian Life conference an outstanding feature will be presenta- 
tion of the conference theme by Dr. Victor T. Glass of the Home Mission Board.

Twentieth Annual Session 



Workshops on the following subjects will explore various aspects of the main 
theme. 

1. The Church and Social Welfare 

2. Understanding the Urban Setting 

3. The Church Working with Community Agencies 

4. How to Organize the Congregation for Effective Christian Witness 

5. Resolving Conflict within the Congregation. 

Everyone is encouraged to support this Christian life conference by prayer, by 
attendance, and by encouraging others to attend. Hopefully each church in the Yates 
Baptist Association will have at least five persons at the conference — one in each of 
the Workshop sessions. Perhaps some churches will be encouraged to study and 
implement the crisis statement in their own congregations. 

The Christian Life Committee looks forward to a continuation of the meaningful 
personal relationships that have been established with fellow Christians from the 
Negro Baptist associations of the Yates Association area. It reports with pleasure 
that a state convention-sponsored Human Relations Conference will be held in 
Durham on Thursday, May 1, 1969. Further details will be announced as soon as 
plans for the conference are complete. 

Members of the Committee who have served this year are: Carl N. Harris, Mrs. 
N. B. Lockwood, E. L. Phillips, and Mrs. Henry Turlington.

Chris C. Hamlet, Chairman 

REPORT OF CONSTITUTION COMMITTEE 

Last year at the annual meeting there was a brief discussion of Articles 2 and 4. 
After considerable investigation during the year it was decided to leave those two 
Articles as they are with one exception, the changing of the words "Extension Com- 
mittee" to "Missions Committee" in line with our modern terminology. Thus the 
Articles will read as follows: 

Article 2. The Association in session shall be composed of the duly elected 
messengers from the cooperating Baptist churches in Durham County and its adjacent 
territory, the regularly elected officers of the Association, and the members of the As- 
sociational Board. 

Article 4. Churches seeking to seat messengers in the Association shall apply 
to the Missions Committee prior to the annual meeting . . . 

In Article 25 we recommend the following changes: 

That Section (2) be revised changing the word January to February. 

That Section (3) be revised with the addition of the words "the Music Director," 
the deletion of the word "Associational" in four places, and the changing of the word 
"President" to "Director" in two places to bring terminology up to date; 

Proposed Changes 

(3) THE ACTIVITIES COMMITTEE shall be composed of three members with 
the Sunday School Superintendent, the Training Union Director, the W.M.U. Direc- 
tor, the Brotherhood Director, the Music Director, and the President of the Ministers' 
Conference, serving as advisory members. It shall be the duty of. . . . 

That Section (8) be revised and strengthened to read as follows: 

Proposed Reading 

(8) THE CHRISTIAN LIFE COMMITTEE shall be composed of five members 
whose duty it shall be to propose ways in which the Association, its cooperating 



Yates Baptist Association 



63 



churches and individual Christians may work for the promotion of civic righteousness 
and social uplift, and to provide educational opportunities for keeping our people 
informed in these areas. 

That Section (10) be revised and strengthened as follows: 

Proposed Changes 

(10) THE RADIO AND TELEVISION COMMITTEE shall be composed of 
three members whose duty it shall be to work with local stations in the securing 
of time, to promote programs of religious and of denominational interest, to en- 
courage the churches to use the media of radio and television, and to study the pos- 
sibility of a regular associational program. 

That Section (13) THE NOMINATIONS COMMITTEE include the following 
paragraph unintentionally left out last year: 

It shall also present nominations to the Associational Board to fill any vacancy 
in the offices for which it nominates to the Association. 

That Section (16) be revised as follows: 

Proposed Changes 

(16) THE CAMP COMMITTEE shall be composed of seven members whose 
duty it shall be to direct the development and use of the property with the advice 
and consent of the Associational Board. 

That Setcion (19) be revised as follows: 

Proposed Changes 

(19) THE CHRISTIAN SOCIAL MINISTRIES COMMITTEE shall be com- 
posed of nine members, including the Woman's Missionary Society Director and the 
Mission Action Leader of Brotherhood, whose duty it shall be to identify needs in 
the Association such as illiteracy, alcoholism and narcotic addiction, juvenile delin- 
quency, unwed mothers, the economically disadvantaged; encourage churches to 
provide ministries to meet these needs; enlist and offer training for those with inter- 
est in these areas; organize and lead the churches cooperatively in some specific 
area(s) when wise and possible. 

REPORT OF THE NON-EVANGELICAL COMMITTEE 

The non-evangelical committee is concerned with making Christ known to all 
who are not Christian. It is further concerned with cultivating better relationships 
between evangelical Christians and non-evangelical groups. In our area this means 
that Jews, Roman Catholics, Mormans, Jehovah's Witnesses, Greek Orthodox, and 
international students have a claim upon our interest. 

During the past year several churches have taken the initiative in cultivating 
friendship and understanding between Baptists, and non-evangelicals. Some groups 
have visited the Roman Catholic Church and the Jewish Synagogue for services of 
worship or for a tour of the facilities. Joint worship services, with discussion periods 
afterward, were engaged in by one Baptist and two non-evangelical churches. Non- 
evangelical clergymen were invited to the Training Union hour by another church. 
Several meetings for food and recreation were planned for international students by 
still another church. 

The non-evangelical committee does not claim credit for these gestures of 
interest. The committee report cites them in order to encourage others to find ways 
of fostering friendship and concern with individuals as well as groups of non- 
evangelicals. 

As we approach the Crusade of the Americas every church and every Christian 



64 



Twentieth Annual Session 



is urged to include non-evangelicals in his thinking, his prayers, his plans, and his 
efforts. 

Mission Action Groups of W.M.S. might concentrate on witnessing to Jewish 
or other friends. 

Individuals can send Jewish New Year cards and other tokens of friendship that 
will be quite meaningful to Jewish friends. 

Individuals and churches could cultivate the friendship of international students 
in varied ways, even by "adopting" one for his stay at Duke or U.N.C. The Inter- 
national House at Duke will be happy to assist. Aside from the possiblility of 
winning some of them to Christ, consider the reservoir of good will for our country 
that could be developed. 

Through genuine friendship and interest we will win the right to witness. In fact, 
if we go to others in His spirit we will be His witness. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Robert M. Winecoff, Chairman

*SUBJECT TO REVISION IN FEBRUARY BOARD MEETING 
REPORT OF AUDITOR 

I have examined the statement of cash receipts and expenditures of the Yates 
Baptist Association for the calendar year ending December 31, 1967. My examina- 
tion was made in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards and ac- 
cordingly included such tests of the accounting records and such other auditing 
procedures as I considered necessary in the circumstances, except that it was not 
practical to extend my examination of income beyond the recorded receipts. 

In my opinion, the accompanying statement of cash receipts and expenditures 
presents fairly the recorded cash transactions of the Yates Baptist Association for 
the calendar year ended December 31, 1967 on a basis consistent with that of the 
preceding year.

1968 REPORT OF THE BIBLICAL RECORDER 
TO THE ASSOCIATIONS 

This is a period in history when some church publications are struggling to 
exist. Smaller circulation, rising cost of publication, mergers, and other factors 
are creating hardships for many publications. 

Your BIBLICAL RECORDER is not immune from some of these problems, but 
there is a brighter side to its ministry. In January, the RECORDER had its 135th 
birthday so this indicates it is durable and hardy. While circulation did not set any 
new records in the past year, a healthy gain was noted. Inflation, accompanied by 
increased printing costs, caused the RECORDER to have to buckle its belt, but neces- 
sary economy steps were well-accepted by our Baptist people. One of these was to 
let the churches pay the state sales tax, thus saving the RECORDER nearly $5,000 a 
year. 



Yates Baptist Association 



67 



There is every indication that the RECORDER is continuing to be read closely. 
Letters to the editor reflect this growing interest on the part of readers. This is 
healthy and is one of the strong points of Baptist democracy. The RECORDER runs 
well over 200 letters a year, many of them expressing strong feelings on a variety 
of subjects. Baptists are individualists and since this is part of our heritage, the 
RECORDER is glad to receive letters on the issues facing Christians today. There 
must be dialogue among Baptists and the RECORDER is glad to serve our denomina- 
tion in this capacity. 

The tragedy is that more of our Baptist people don't get the RECORDER. Al- 
though hundreds of churches send it to every home, there are too many churches that 
do not have it in the budget. Frequently the interest and hard work of one person 
can mean the difference. Try it and see. 

The RECORDER staff rededicates itself to the job of getting out the best paper 
possible in these days of serious upheaval. Speaking the truth in love is the goal 
of the RECORDER at all times. The support of all Baptists is needed in carrying 
out this objective. 

Respectfully submitted, 
J. Marse Grant, Editor 

REPORT OF RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE 

Be it gladly and gratefully resolved: 

That with heart and mind and soul we make this moment a spiritual ascent up 
God's holy hill to praise Him for His angels of Goodness and Mercy which have 
followed us all the days of our life. And that, as we mount up the hill, let us go 
chanting with the Psalmist, "I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord." 

That we sing praises to God for each of His shepherd-servants who have done the 
overseeing and superintending work of this Association since we last met. That to 
our Moderator, Bruce Cornell Little, and to our Clerk, Harrell Perry, and to our 
Superintendent of Missions, Hubert S. Mumford, and to our Program Committee, 
and to each other shepherd-o^^ice who has laid out himself or herself in toil for the 
flock of this Association in any capacity, and to each one who has had any part in 
putting "the song of the Lamb" within our hearts and upon our lips — to each of 
these shepherd-servants of His let us say, "We do sing praises unto the Lord for the 
way you have labored to lead us in His paths for His name's sake. And may the 
Great Shepherd Himself lead you where the still waters of rest flow." 

That we sing praises to God for His gracious servant-hosts at the University 
Church and at the Plainview Church, who prepared a table before us. And not only 
so, but anointed our heads with the oil of a royal welcome and ran our cups over 
with unmeasured blessings. And to these gracious hosts let us say, "May the Great 
Host of all welcome you to His very own table and run your cup over with His 
tender mercies and loving kindnesses." 

That we sing praises to God for "the tie that binds our hearts in Christian love" 
in this Association, and very particularly for the wonderful warm fellowship that 
we have had experience of in this annual session of it. 

And that, finally, we sing songs of prayer to the Great Shepherd God of the sheep. 

That we sing a song of prayer for the family and loved ones of those of our 
beloved dead who have "walked through the valley of the shadow of death" — that 
He may make their hearts "comfortable" with His great rod and staff. 

That we sing a song of prayer for God to lay His great staff also upon the open 
war in Vietnam, and upon all the hidden wars elsewhere, and to guide them into 
the pathway of His own will of peace. 

That we sing a song of prayer that God may also place his mighty staff upon 



68 



Twentieth Annual Session 



this land of ours on the eve of a decisive election, and that He may guide the people 
to choose leaders who will "hear his voice" and "follow him" as He seeks to lead this 
land in "the paths of righteousness" — until at last in this land and this world "there 
shall be one flock, and one shepherd." 

That we sing a song of prayer for our own selves, as we go forward into the 
future, beseeching Him "that leadest Joseph like a flock" to lead us forth into the 
pathways of ever greater and greater service for "that Great Shepherd of the 
Sheep," who loved us and gave Himself for us, and washed our red-like-crimson sins 
and made them white as wool. 

Yea, that we beseech Him to lead us gently, and to gather us with his arm, and 
carry us in His bosom until we are safe home at last in New Jerusalem beyond the 
wilderness of this world. 

"Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus, 

Hear, O hear us when we pray. 
"Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus, 

Thou has bought us. Thine we are. 

"Blessed Jesus, blessed Jesus, 

Thou has loved us, love us still." 

Amen. 

Gratefully and gladly submitted with 
songs of praise to our Shepherd God, 

Mrs. Julian M. Motley 
Mrs. Don C. Christian 
G. Fred Lipe, Chairman 

ASSOGIATIONAL FOUNDATION REPORT FOR 1968 

During the past year. The North Carolina Baptist Foundation, Inc., has made 
regular and systematic progress. More and more of our Baptist people are inquiring 
about the services of the Foundation and are following these inquiries with concrete 
evidence of their concern. Some have made direct monetary contributions through 
the Foundation for a particular agency or institution. Others, with the help of their 
lawyers, have made provisions in their wills that through the Foundation Christian 
causes have been remembered. 

One of our major emphases has been in the area of will making. Our pastors, 
associational superintendents, and our church representatives have given encourag- 
ing help in this educational campaign. The response in each instance, whether in an 
association or individual church, has been most gratifying. 

We solicit your prayers and your continuing cooperation. The Foundation re- 
mains ready to assist you in any phase of our endeavors. Please call on us if we can 
be of assistance to you.

Constitution 

Revised 1968 



Name 

Article 1. This body shall be known as the Yates Baptist Association of North 
Carolina. 

Membership 

Article 2, The Association in session shall be composed of the duly elected mes- 
sengers from the cooperating Baptist Churches in Durham County and its adjacent 
territory, the regularly elected officers of the Association, and the members of the 
Associational Board. 

Article 3. Each church shall be represented at the annual meeting of the Asso- 
ciation and at any special meeting during the year by messengers who shall be duly 
certified, and in the following ratio: 

(1) Three for the first hundred members or fraction thereof and one for each 
additional hundred or fraction thereof, provided that the total number of 
messengers shall not exceed ten. 

(2) All pastors of churches of the Association shall be recognized as messengers, 
in addition to those specified above. 

Article 4. Churches seeking to seat messengers in the Association shall apply to 
the Missions Committee prior to the annual meeting of the Association, giving evi- 
dence of their faith and order and their agreement to be received under the watchcare 
of the Association. Upon recommendation of the committee and the approval of the 
Association by a two-thirds majority of the members present and voting, the church 
or churches shall be received under the watchcare of the Association for a period of 
one year. It is understood that during the period of watchcare such churches will be 
accorded all the services of the Association and all its privileges with the exception of 
the right to seat voting messengers and to voting representation on the Associational 
Board. At the end of the year of watchcare, the church or churches may, by a two- 
thirds vote of the Association, be received into full fellowship of the Association or 
continued under watchcare or have the request for fellowship rejected. Upon admis- 
sion to full fellowship, the church or churches shall be authorized to seat duly 
elected messengers with voting privileges and voting members on the Associational 
Board. 

Article 5. The Association shall have power, upon giving notice of nine months 
and by two-thirds majority vote of messengers present and voting, to withdraw 
fellowship from any church that shall willfully depart from orthodox principles of 
the Christian religion as taught in the Bible and as believed by Baptists, or that fails 
to represent itself either by messenger or by letter at the annual session of the 
Association without sufficient reason, or that fails to support causes fostered by the 
denomination at large and of this Association in particular, or that ceases to be 
missionary in practice. 

Article 6. Any church may decline to send messengers to the Association at its 
pleasure. Whenever this constitutes a withdrawal of fellowship on the part of the 
church, the Association shall not as a body, or through a representative or repre- 
sentatives, seek to restrain by coercion or law the withdrawal action of the church.

vention of North Carolina and the Southern Baptist Convention in all religious edu-

Powers and Prerogatives 

Article 8. The Association, when convened in meeting, shall sit as advisory 
council, and shall have no power to infringe on any of the internal rights of the

mendations the highest consideration.

tor, Clerk, Treasurer Auditor, Historian, and such others as may be authorized by 
the Association. 

Article 14. All officers shall be members of the churches affiliated with the 
Association. 

Article 15. The officers shall be elected at the first session of the annual meeting 
of the Association, and these shall assume their duties at the close of the annual

himself, except the Moderator, who may not serve more than two years in succession. 

Article 16. The Moderator shall preside over the annual meeting of the Asso- 
ciation and begin each session punctually. He shall appoint such committees as may 
be authorized by the Constitution, or by the Association, enforce the rules, preserve

sociation Has Been Doing" by John Clayton; "What the Association Should Be

29. *(The following was the basis for the motions to follow: 

"On February 26, 1969, the Watts Street Baptist Church adopted the following 
policy: 

Article 1. Reception of Members 

Section A. Members may be received in any one of the following ways: 

1. Upon profession of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord followed by 
baptism by immersion, such baptism being required of all new 
converts. 

2. By transfer of letter from another Christian Church giving 
evidence of baptism by immersion or by another mode, if that 
baptism is meaningful to the candidate, and upon the condition 
that all membership requirements, including confirmation, of 
the denomination from which he comes have been fully 
satisfied. 

3. If a letter cannot be obtained, by statement of the candidate 
concerning his baptism and church affiliation and by reaffirma- 
tion of faith in Jesus Christ as Lord. 

4. Exceptions to the above requirements may be made when, in 
the judgment of the minister and the deacons, unusual cir- 
cumstances justify a change from the norm.") 

30. Russell Barbee, pastor of the Bethesda Baptist Church moved the following: 
"Brother Moderator, last February the Rev. Robert McClernon, pastor of the 

Watts Street Baptist Church sent a communication to other pastors in Yates Associa- 
tion informing us of action taken by Watts Street Church which changed their con- 
stitution with the reference to their acceptance of members. Their constitution now 
provides for accepting some members from other churches who have not been 
baptized by immersion. 

Inasmuch as this action constitutes a departure from the generally accepted 
teachings of Scripture concerning the mode of baptism, and. 

Inasmuch as the Scriptures are the basis of doctrine and practice of Baptists, and, 

Inasmuch as this action puts their practice in direct contradiction with their own 
expressed belief concerning the mode of Christian Baptism, and, 

Inasmuch as any mode of Baptism other than immersion mars the picture of the 
death, burial and resurrection of Our Lord, and. 

Inasmuch as their action represents a departure from the main stream of Baptist 
in history, and, furthermore. 

Inasmuch as this action by Watts Street Church seriously affects the fellowship 
of the Association and raises difficult problems concerning the transfer of members, 

I, therefore, in the spirit of Christian love, move that we respectfully convey to 
Mr. McClernon and the Watts Street Churh that we the messengers of the sister 
churches of Yates Baptist Association, on this day of our Annual Associational meet- 

*( Denotes editor's note of explanation.)

ing go on record as reaffirming our commitment to the Scriptural and historical mode 
of baptism by immersion, and in stating our opposition to a membership policy 
among our churches that would accept any members without immersion, and that we 
respectfully request the Watts Street Church to reconsider their action in this regard." 
Seconded by Ned Mathews. 

31. Ernest G. Holt, pastor of the Guess Road Baptist Church, made the following 
substitute motion:* 

"Whereas, the action of the Watts Street Baptist Church on February 26, 
1969 has brought to our attention their wilful departure from orthodox 
principles of the Christian religion as taught in the Bible and as believed by 
Baptists, that this church be placed under the watchcare of the Yates Baptist 
Association for the period of one year while the church engages itself in a 
careful re-examination of this matter. 

Be it understood that during this period of watchcare that the church, ac- 
cording to the same provision extended to those churches applying for mem- 
bership in Yates Baptist Association by our present constitution, will be 
accorded all the services of the Association and all its privileges with the 
exception of the right to seat voting messengers and to voting representation 
on the Associational Board; and that the provision of voting be extended to all 
sessions after this one including the annual session of 1970." This was seconded 
by Vernon McDaniel. 

32. B. E. White, Jr., pastor of the Park View Baptist Church, moved that these 
two motions be tabled until tomorrow's business session. Seconded by Dr. D. R. 
Perry and approved. 

33. Motion to adjourn afternoon session.

*(The motion below was made by Vernon McDaniel as an amending motion and

motion. Hereafter this motion will be referred to as the McDaniel motion.)

Report Section 



A HISTORY OF ANGIER AVENUE BAPTIST CHURCH 

Every great achievement that has ever been attained had to be built on a solid 
foundation. Unity, brotherly love, fellowship, and a love for God and His Son, 
Jesus Christ, and with a desire to advance His Kingdom here on earth is the founda- 
tion upon which Angier Avenue Baptist Church stands. 

Because of her love for God and a great desire to serve Him, in August 1889, 
Mrs. Mary A. Wrenn deeded a tract of land to the following trustees of the First 
Baptist Church to be used for the erection of what became the Third Baptist Church: 
Thomas J. Rigsbee, T. S. Christian, S. T. Morgan, O. B. Foushee, and H. D. Mark- 
ham. This land was the ground on which our present building stands. 

The Church was officially organized on December 1, 1889, and at this time, East 
Durham, as it is called, was not a part of the City of Durham. It was a separate 
and distinct town. It had its own squire and town officials. There were no paved 
streets, no electric lights, no running water, and the telephone was an instrument 
that few people knew anything about. The church was lighted with kerosene lamps 
that hung from either the ceiling or walls of the building. Coal-burning stoves 
heated the building. People depended on wells for their water supply, and many 
times during the hot weather of summer, water would often become a treasured item 
as the wells "ran dry." 

However, even though faced with these conditions and many other hardships, 
these good people were not deterred from their determination and in the Associa- 
tional report of 1889 they were given recognition for their good works. 

On January 1, 1890, Rev. J. F. MacDuffie was called to serve as the first pastor. 
The church was served well by several great men of God. Following Rev. MacDuffie, 
were Rev. C. W. Blanchard, Rev. O. C. Horton, Rev. J. C. Owen, Rev. W. F. Fry, 
Rev. J. O. Alderman, Rev. J. W. Downey, Rev. M. P. Davis, Rev. Q. C. Davis, and 
Rev. H. F. Brinson. Following Rev. Brinson's resignation. Rev, W. G. Hall was 
called March 1925. Rev. Hall served the church as Pastor until November 1943. 
Having served the church for nearly nineteen years, Rev. Hall was forcd to resign 
due to ill health. He had been named Pastor Emeritus and served in this capacity 
until his death in August 1950. 

Following the resignation of Rev. Hall, Rev. C. N. Royal was called to the 
pastorate and began his work with us in January 1944. 

Rev. Royal, too, like many of his predecessors, was a man not afraid to do 
great things for God and for the advancement of His Kingdom. Tireless in his ef- 
forts, our church, under his pastorate, began to make great strides forward. 

The interior of our church took on a new look in 1950 when a new pipe organ 
was installed at a cost of $15,000.00, with the dedication service being held on April 
30, 1950. 

Also during this period our church had paid off a huge debt and had purchased 
additional land adjoining the church property in preparation for future expansion as 
our church was greatly handicapped because of its need for more wSunday School 
rooms. 

Sunday morning. May 3, 1959, following the morning worship service, the con- 
gregation adjourned to the church lawn for the ground breaking program. Following 
a prayer of dedication by our pastor, the first spades of dirt were raised. Our new 
building was dedicated and opened on Sunday, July 31, 1960.

Rev. Royal celebrated his twentieth anniversary with our church on January 1, 
1964. Mrs. Royal was also very active in our church. She taught a class of young 
women, in addition to her work as a public school teacher, and took an active part 
in the Missionary Society and many other facets of our church. 

In September 1964, Rev. and Mrs. Royal resigned from our church and moved 
into their new home on Glendale Avenue. 

Rev. John Freeman came to Angier Avenue and served as interim pastor until 
August 1965. 

In August 1965, Rev. Crate Jones and his wonderful family were called to our 
church. During his ministry here the church has moved forward. A long needed 
parsonage has been erected and a parking area has been paved. Under the influence 
of Rev. Jones our music program has grown. Through the leadership and devotion 
of Mr. and Mrs. Art Fore more choirs have been organized and a deep interest has 
developed among the youth of our church. 

Since that day in December 1889, this church has held a high place in our com- 
munity, our city, and our state. It has been a shining light for God and for his Son, 
Jesus Christ. From its early membership of forty four faithful members, it has 
grown until its membership roll numbers 1,386 followers of Christ. 

May our church continue to grow in Grace and Knowledge and ever become a 
greater light to shine for Him. 

HISTORY OF RED MOUNTAIN BAPTIST CHURCH 
ROUGEMONT, N. G. 

The Red Mountain Baptist Church of Rougemont, N. C. was organized in the year 
of 1881. Services were held under a brush arbor. It is located in the northern sec- 
tion of Durham County. 

Three of the charter members were Mr. & Mrs. William Bowling, Mr. James 
Lunsford. Bro. Jesse Howell had been sent from the Mt. Zion association to preach 
once a month. Due to age and failing health, he was unable to continue as Pastor. 
Bro. Wright then was called as Pastor. He was assisted in the first revival by Bro, 
Morton of Roxboro. There were sixteen persons added to the church at that time. 
Thus the church grew and was accepted into the Mt. Zion Association in October, 
1882. 

Other charter members who worked long and hard were Brethern Rufus and 
James Bowen, Bro. G. W. Jones and others. Some of these are buried in the church 
cemetery. 

It was under the leadership of Bro. E. J. Caldwell, Pastor in 1928 that the church 
and community decided to build a better house of worship. A brick veneer building 
was decided upon at a cost of aproximately $9,000.00. The W.M.U. of the church 
donated $500.00 for the roof. Bro. and Mrs. Bunn Bowling gave the timber that was 
needed and Bro. Eugene Mangum gave the use of his sawmill and truck for hauling 
the brick, sawed timber, sand, etc. Many sacrifices were made; much hard work and 
many long hours were ipent in the building of this rural church. 

There have been several pastors since the new building was erected. Some of the 
pastors and some of the accomplishments under their leadership are: 

1956-1961— Rev. J. Thad Ashley 
The first Pastorium for the church was built. Bro. Ashley, his wife, Doris, and 
their two daughters were the first occupants of the new pastorium. Training Union 
was also begun. 

1962-1964— Rev. W. Hubert Barnes 
During Bro. Barnes pastorate, the church went full time. Additional ground was 
purchased for the cemetery and other church uses.

Twenty-First Annual Session 



October 1964-Feb. 1967— Rev. Otis T. Hooks 
Under the leadership of Bro. Hooks, the Sunday School Building was renovated, 
making room for much needed class rooms. A heating system was installed in the 
sanctuary and also in the class rooms. During his pastorate a jvell was dug enabling 
the church to install a water fountain inside the church. 

March 1967-Dec. 1967— Rev. Belvin Cox 
Bro. Cox served the church as interim pastor during this time. During the leader- 
ship of Bro. Cox, bath rooms were installed in the building. 

December 1967 — Rev. John G. Bailey 
Bro. Bailey is the present pastor and under his leadership, the cemetery has been 
plotted and blue printed. 

At present we are seeking to promote a work among the young people; to 
evangelize the surrounding community; and to reclaim the inactive members of the 
church.

REPORT OF THE SUNDAY SCHOOL 

The two main functions of the Sunday School are to teach the biblical revela- 
tion and to lead in reaching all prospects for the church. The Associational Sunday 
School Organization seeks to assist the churches in performing these functions. 

Several projects were held in our association during the past year. The purpose 
of these projects was to help interpret the work of the Sunday Schools and to give 
assistance in performing the work. A one-night orientation meeting was held the 
early part of October 1968 to help new teachers gain understanding of their teach- 
ing task. In February a one-night Church Growth Workshop was presented. Our 
new State Sunday School Secretary, Rev. Burrel Lucas, led this workshop with the 
assistance of Reverend Bill Lamb, of the State Department of Evangelism. Two 
Vacation Bible School Clinics were held in April. 

A very encouraging development has been the frequency with which the various 
churches have called upon individual workers in the associational Sunday School 
Organization to assist in specialized needs. This has been stressed for several years, 
and one of the main thrusts for the new year will be a continued stress on this type 
of specialized help in the churches. 

One of our main programs for 1969-70 is to use every opportunity repeatedly to 
expose the churches to the new program in Sunday School work that will begin in 
October 1970. Several of these meetings have been planned and appear in the 
associational calendar. Other meetings will be announced as the need arises and the 
opportunity presents itself. 

We continue to urge the churches to feel free to call on any of the staff of the 
Associational Sunday School Organization for assistance in any way. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Anthony Z. Gurganus, Superintendent

REPORT OF BROTHERHOOD 



With mission study and mission action as the two main tasks in Brotherhood 
work, your associational Brotherhood Council naturally rejoices in the ever- 
increasing mission activities being reported through our churches. We also rejoice in 
the parallel mission activities in our sister organization, the Woman's Missionary 
Union. 

We trust that an increasing number of churches, whether or not they have the 
Brotherhood organization, will put real emphasis upon mission activities. Churches 
may carry out this task through special committees of men, through deacons, as- 
sociate deacons, a missions committee and other ways. We must not be deterred by 
technicalities. We need to minimize meetings and programs and emphasize service 
for others. 

In January several of our churches observed Baptist Men's Day. This day always 
draws attention to the importance of our laymen in the Church and in God's 
Kingdom. Some churches had only one worship service conducted by the men; 
others had a whole week of activities. 

During the year we have had several important events as an Associational 
Brotherhood. 

On January 28 our annual Ladies' Night was held at Braggtown. It consisted of 
a period of fellowship, banquet and worship services. The banquet was served by 
the ladies of the host church. Bob Holleman presided. Mr. Frank Ingram, Mission- 
ary of the Mount Zion Association, spoke on "Humorous Incidents while Witnes- 
sing." Laughter was never more hearty! At the 7:30 service Mr. Claiborne Ross, 
Association Director, presided and Mr. Ingram spoke on the "Do's and Dont's of 
Witnessing." 

A well-organized RA track meet was held on April 12 at Durham High School 
with Messrs. Jim Barringer and Ray Hertzog, associational RA leaders, in charge. 

The spring RA Campout was held at the Yates Camp on April 25, 26. Special 
speaker for the occasion was the Reverend Bill Jackson, Director of the State RA 
Camp Caraway, outside of Asheboro, North Carolina. After his talk, a hike was 
taken and he pointed out some interesting things in the woods. The rest of the 
morning was given to competitions between the various church groups. 

At the spring Baptist Men's Meeting at Lowe's Grove, emphasis was given to the 
various tasks and emphases of this organization. Edwin Clements, Bob Watson, 
Aubrey Wheeler, Bob Terrell, Jim Barringer, and Ray Hertzog all spoke. At this 
meeting the Superintendent of Missions had the privilege of presenting a trophy to 
Aubrey Wheeler for his many years of service with the Associational Brotherhood 
Organization. 

Yates Association Royal Ambassadors brought home several ribbons from the 
first State RA Track Meet at Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, on May 17. 
Church groups winning included Angier Avenue, Calvary, and Guess Road. 

The Annual Man-Boy Rally was held at Bethesda on July 19. Mr. Bob Joyce, 
of the Durham YMCA, demonstrated some calisthenics and let the boys try them. 
Classes on RA work were conducted for both boys and counselors, followed by a 
hamburger supper. The evening was concluded with a message by Coach Johnny 



Yates Baptist Association 



39 



Clements of State College, Raleigh, and a member of the Fellowship of Christian 
Athletes. 

The last two events of the year were another RA Campout on September 5-7 at 
the Yates Camp and the annual Workshop at Lakewood on September 23. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Claiborne Ross, Director 

REPORT OF THE MUSIC COUNCIL 

The Music Council met six times during the past season in executive meetings to 
plan the work of the council for the season, and make some tentative plans for the 
next year. 

On Sunday afternoon, October 20, 1968, the eighth annual Yates Association 
Hymn Sing was held at Mount Moriah Baptist Church. Choirs from Lakewood, 
Temple, Yates and Angier Avenue participated. Hymns were favorites of members 
of Yates Association churches — chosen in a poll taken throughout the churches of 
this association. There was an excellent attendance for this most inspiring and en- 
joyable hour of worship and praise through song. 

A choir was used for the opening of each session (Tuesday morning, Tuesday 
afternoon, and Wednesday morning) of the 1968 Annual Associational meeting in 
October. This Associational Choir did a grand job and contributed in a fine way to 
the three worship periods. 

The Annual Choral Clinic for choir members and music leaders in the churches 
of our Association was held at Calvary Baptist Church on Monday, February 10, 
1969. About 55 people from 12 churches attended. About ten of the number were 
guests from outside the association. Guest leader for the clinic was Fred Kelly of 
Winston-Salem. Many who attended the clinic felt it was the finest we have held, 
though it was not the largest in attendance. Mr. Kelly did an outsanding job. Best 
attendance from any one church was that of the host church, Calvary. 

An area choral clinic slated for March at Hope Valley Church did not work out. 
The committee decided that, in the future, such area clinics would only be held if 
there was sufficient pre-registration to warrant it. 

The council wishes to commend very highly the work of James Staples and Grady 
Long (and any others who work with them) in the grand job they have done along 
with the youth of our association in the Youth Choir — especially their preparation 
and various presentations of the folk musical "Good News." They have really done 
an exceptional job, and have been (and continue to be) a blessing to many. 

As this report is being prepared, the Music Council is making final plans for the 
1969 Hymn Sing, the 1969 annual meeting (associational choir for this meeting), and 
the 1970 Choral Clinic. 

We would Hke to say, as we have in the past, that we, the members of the Yates 
Association Music Council, stand ready to give assistance to any church of the as- 
sociation, so far as time, opportunity, and ability permit. Call on us. We will help 
in any way we can. 

Respectfully submitted, 
John T. Laverty, Director 

REPORT OF THE WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

The year 1968-1969 has presented many new ideas in the work of Woman's Mis- 
sionary Union. We do believe that adapting to these new ideas and making changes 
in methods has made the performance of our tasks easier and more effective. We are 
still in a period of transition, but sense a settling down and going to work again 



40 



Twenty-First Annual Session 



with more enthusiasm which a greater emphasis, Mission Action, has helped to 
motivate. 

The theme of the year was "A Church Fulfilling Its Mission" with major thrusts 
of emphasis being the Crusade of the Americas and Project 500. Our participating 
churches in the Crusade are still feeling the effects of these efforts. We are happy 
that there were many new missions and churches begun in response to the Project 
500. 

The meetings of WMU this year have been exciting. The Annual WMU meeting 
was held on a stormy Tuesday evening, April 15, but 452 WMU ladies braved the 
elements and enjoyed the fellowship. Speakers for the evening could not have been 
better for this type of meeting. They were: Mr. Carson Blanton, Superintendent of 
Union Mission, Roanoke Rapids; Mrs. Judson Lennon, Foreign Missionary to 
Thailand; Mrs. James T. Lochridge, Missionary to the Philippines; and Miss Sara Ann 
Hobbs, Executive Secretary of the State WMU Convention. 

One of the highlights of our year was the August bi-annual WMU meeting held 
at Gorman Church. The young people of our churches were invited and they 
responded beautifully. The 352 in attendance heard the Grey Stone Youth Choir, 
under the direction of James Staples, present fifteen minutes of contemporary sacred 
folk music. Campus Crusade for Christ was represented, and from the testimonies 
of three young people, many learned for the fiurst time the vital impact that this 
organization is making on our College Campuses across the land. The W. A. 
Mitchiners from Oxford brought our meeting to a climax with a trip around the 
world by slides and audio-aids. The aim for this meeting was to impress upon the 
minds of those in attendance, that if the world is to be won for Christ it is to be 
done through the dedication of individuals, who have been called by Christ to carry 
the gospel to the peoples around the world. 

ASSOGIATIONAL YOUTH ORGANIZATIONS 

The Young Women's Auxiliary has held quarterly meetings with well-planned 
programs. New YWA organizations have been formed in Park View Church, Lake- 
wood Church, and Mount Herman Church. The Gorman Baptist Church has re- 
organized their YWA's, and there is continued efforts being made to have this im- 
portant organization in all of our churches. 

The Girl's Auxiliary has held quarterly meetings with good attendances, and has 
helped to organize Junior and Intermediate GA work in the Red Mountain Church. 
This is a very active organization, and their outreach is great. 

The Sunbeam Band held its third consecutive Sunbeam Day Camp with 81 en- 
rolled at the Yates Campground. Child evangelism workers were enlisted to tell the 
character and Bible stories, and other leaders to help with art and crafts. 

The Women's Missionary Union ministry at Murdoch Center is continuing with 
5th Sunday visitation to the cottages at the Center. Also there are five churches. 
Angler Avenue, First, Page Road, Grey Stone, and Grace, who minister monthly 
to the Gateway House. Our opportunities are almost endless in this institution, and 
we are grateful for the doors that are opened to our ministry. 

Women's Missionary Union work in 1969-70 is to present to us even greater 
challenges with more changes in terminology, and organizational plans. We pray 
that God will continue to use this organization for his honor and glory and for the 
propagation of the gospel. Women were found faithful and loyal to God all through 
the Bible and were used in great ways by God, and since have been found faithful 
and loyal and used in serving God when needs are presented. With the future 
happening all around us, it is our desire to be found in the midst of it doing God's

REPORT OF GAMP COMMITTEE 

During the past winter three things happened. 1. The wells were tested and 
found to be producing one gallon a minute instead of AV2 gallons. 2. The Durham 
County Health Department inspected the camp, urged us to get a more adequate 
water supply and unify the system, improve the kitchen facilities, and take care of 
a few other technicalities. 3. We had run out of funds available for making these 
improvements. 

Through the help of the Finance Committee and the approval of the associational 
board, money was borrowed from "Quarter per Quarter" funds to drill additional 
wells. Dr. Jasper Stuckey, retired state geologist, Mr. Steve Conrad, present state 
geologist, Mr. Ed Berry, state hydrologist, and even an old-timer with a peach-tree 
fork were all consulted in agreeing on proper locations. Two wells were drilled, one 
to a depth of 295 feet and the other to 595 feet. The first well produced only V2 
gallon per minute and will not be used. The second well produces over 7 gallons 
a minute and will give us adequate water for resident camps next summer if we 
install at least a 10,000 gallon storage tank. 

During the last few weeks we have also consulted with various companies to get 
accurate costs for putting the camp in good condition for increased use. The capital 
improvements and maintenance items in the budget reflect the results of this tedious 
task. 

With adequate funds during the coming months we will have a substantial water 
supply, the gradual replacement of tents by screened-in cabins, a lighted outdoor 
chapel, improved kitchen facilities, a freezer, an additional refrigerator, storage for 
canned goods, and many other items that will bring pride to all of us. We also 
anticipate providing accident insurance coverage in the immediate future for all 
campers using the grounds. 



42 



Twenty-First Annual Session 



We rejoice in the proposal of the Finance Committee and board to unify our 
entire financial program including the bond retirement. Looking to the future we 
have kept informed on the progress of the "Falls of the Neuse" project and we 
have consulted with owners of neighboring properties. 

Over 2,000 people from 24 churches used the grounds during the past year. We 
expect the number of people to double this year with resident camps next summer. 
It will not be unreasonable to expect someone from every church to attend a resi- 
dent camp next summer. 

Up to this time the camp has been available by reservation to members of our 
churches and their guests, and BSU members at Duke and U.N.C., but, through a 
technicality, the same privilege of inviting guests has not been extended to the 
associational organizations and committees. The Camp Committee therefore recom- 
mends for clarification (1) that we continue the policy of limiting reservations to the 
groups listed above but (2) that the associational organizations and committees be 
given the same privilege as churches in inviting guests. 

The Camp Committee also recommends, (1) that the first building at the Yates 
Camp — the caretaker's house — be named the Johnson-Taylor Building, in honor of 
the first camp committee chairman, O. A. Johnson, and in memory of the executive- 
secretary of the Foreign Mission Board of the SBC, (2) that an appropriate occasion 
be set aside for this dedication service during the coming year, and (3) that suitable 
plaques be installed on both the house and the Nichols-Maddry Lodge. 

We regret that many of our church leaders have never visited our Yates Camp. 
For this reason we have completed a set of slides with audio-tape to enable our 
people to "visit the camp" within their own church buildings. 

We rejoice in the number of young people who, during church retreats, camps, 
and other meetings, have committed their lives to Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord 
and/or have made decisions for special Christian service. 

We remember the words of the speaker at the dedication of the Nichols-Maddry 
Lodge on Sunday, October 10, 1965: "Time spent in planning, working, and praying, 
to say nothing of the thousands of dollars invested in these grounds, will be a loss 
to the kingdom of God unless training and missionary education are at the heart 



This year the Fellowship Committee undertook two surveys to fulfill its assign- 
ment of promoting a good relationship between pastors and churches. 

The first was "A Study of the Length of Pastorates and the Arrangements Made 
with Pastors in the Yates Baptist Association." It was made through the cooperation 
of the clerks and treasurers of the churches. It was undertaken to assist the churches 
in understanding the situation regarding pastoral employment, the shortness of tenure, 
and the loss of men to the pastoral ministry. Its intent was also to help each church 
in its pastoral relationship by enabling it to see what arrangements other churches are 
making with their pastors. 

The second was "A Study of Procedures Used by Pulpit Committees in the 
Yates Association." It was made through the cooperation of the last chairman of 
the Pulpit Committee in the church and the pastors who were called to the churches. 
Its purpose was to analyze the wide variety of approaches used by the churches 
and to suggest improvements in procedural practices. 

Both of these studies have been made available to the churches through the as- 



of activities experienced here.

REPORT OF CHRISTIAN SOCIAL MINISTRIES COMMITTEE 

The Kingdom of God is at hand and the Christian Social Ministries Committee 
wishes its work to witness to this truth. 

Our major emphasis has been to give support and guidance to the program of 
Adult and Juvenile Rehabilitation, We have encouraged a climate of understanding 
in the churches and tried to involve interested persons in programs of assistance 
to problem drinkers and their families — of course supplementing the work of the 
Community Social Agencies. 

We have consulted with the State Convention and the Home Mission Board and 
applied to them through the Finance Committee and the association board for supple- 
mentary funds for this program in 1970. 

We suggest that the name of our ministry be changed from "Juvenile and Adult 
Rehabilitation" to "Youth and Family Services" in line with the terminology of 
these denominational agencies. 

We wrote the governor of our state and our local representatives urging their 
support for budget appropriations for vocational rehabilitation for the 1.1 million 
Physically and mentally ill of our state. 

One of our great disappointments was that we were unable to follow through 
with some resident camps for disadvantaged persons at the Yates Camp this past 
summer. Among the obstacles hindering us was the policy of the association in 
limiting the privilege of inviting guests to the churches. 

Because of this technicality our committee has not felt free to plan resident camps 
for such groups as juvenile delinquents, economically disadvantaged, mentally 
retarded, rheumatoid arthritics, and others. We recommend that the Christian Social 
Ministries Committee be given the same privilege of inviting others as the churches 
have so that we can go ahead with our camp program for next summer. 

In September and early October 'The School in Christian Social Ministries" and 
a "Seminar" offered information and training for those persons who wanted to be 
"enablers" to persons in need. The committee feels this was a well-organized and 
worthwhile opportunity. Hopefully, those who attended are better prepared to help 
persons in need. 

We would like to commend the work of the Reverend Boyce Kimball to you. 
He has worked diligently and faithfully and creatively at his task as your Minister of 
Juvenile and Adult Rehabilitation. 

We look forward to continuing with our rehabilitation of the alcoholic and his 
family, to helping the non-reader by implementing a program for them, to aiding 
youth in conflict and to holding at least three weeks of camp for disadvantaged 
persons this next year.

Mrs. W. M. Upchurch, Jr., Chairman 

REPORT OF EVANGELISM COMMITTEE 

The simultaneous revival meetings held last spring as a part of the Crusade of the 
Americas bore evidence, in some places across the state, of being genuine spiritual 
revivals. Where God's people sowed bountifully, they reaped gloriously. In our as- 
sociation the Crusade was greatly used by our Lord. A look at the record is suf- 
ficient. There was 607 additions by baptism and 852 by letter. 

As we face the future in evangelism we should take note of what happened this 
year where outstanding revivals were experinced. This will give some guidelines for 
future plans in evangelism. As observed across the state some of the characteristics 
were: 



44 



Twenty-First Annual Session 



1. In every church where an unusual revival was reported there had been an unusual 
prayer concern and prayer participation across several months on the part of some 
church people — usually the leaders. This definitely says something to us for the 
future. 

2. Some of the most powerful revivals in our state started among the young people 
of our churches. Young people are prominent in many places today (mostly in 
worldly places, and it is encouraging to know that when they offer themselves to 
God to be used in His purpose, as many are doing, that revivals break forth in 
the churches. This has taken place in several churches in North Carolina this 
year. It ought to be happening everywhere. 

In the light of what we have seen this year, here are some "musts" for the future: 

1. To seek earnestly to be completely assured in our hearts and minds that the only 
hope for us and all people is Christ — Christ as He and His gospel are revealed by 
the Holy Spirit through the Bible, the inspired and inerrant Word of God. 

2. To purpose to engage daily in searching the Scriptures and in praying for spiritual 
revival in the churches. Some have made a beginning in this vital matter and all 
other Christians should join them and continue stead-fastly therein. 

3. To proclaim faithfully "publicly and from house to house" (Acts 20:20) the 
glorious gospel of Christ, and to make this purpose central in all church plans, 
programs and activities.

W. Gattis Perry, Chairman 

REPORT OF ASSOGIATIONAL BOARD 

The board was busier than usual this past year with five regular meetings in 
November, February, May, September and October, plus three special meetings in 
April, June and July. 

February 

Reverend Tony Gurganus, Superintendent of the S.S. organization, announced 
the Church Growth Workshop on February 13 with Reverend Merle Lucas and 
Reverend William Lamb from the State Convention. 

Reverend W. Gattis Perry, Chairman of the Evangelism Committee, stressed the 
Rally on Sunday, March 16, with Charlie B. Howard as guest preacher, and reported 
the number of churches planning to participate in the Crusade of the Americas. 

Mr. A. B. Stone, Jr., presented the revised 1969 budget, totalling $43,324, which 
was adopted. 

A special board meeting was set up for Tuesday, April 8, IF IT WAS NEEDED. 

April 

It was reported 1) that the $5,000 expected from sources outside the association 
to be paid on the Garrett Road property was not available, 2) that a special meeting 
of the Executive, Finance, Missions, and Trustee Committees had been called to 
authorize borrowing that amount plus interest of $135 from "Quarter per Quarter" 
funds (rather than going to a bank or private individual); 3) that $1,000 had been 
ok'd by the state convention toward our rehabilitation program (an increase of $400 
over anticipated funds). 

It was reported that $2500 on church expansion had been received from the state 
convention. It was voted to pay this amount plus $400 (unanticipated funds men- 
tioned above) and $135 from the general fund to reimburse "Quarter per Quarter" 
funds (leaving $2100 still owed). 



Yates Baptist Association 



45 



Mr. A. B. Stone, Jr., brought the joint request of the Camp and Finance Com- 
mittees to borrow another $5000 from "Quarter per Quarter" funds to drill additional 
wells at the Yates Camp. The existing wells had reduced in output from AV2 
gallons per minute to 1 gallon per minute, making resident camps impossible. Ad- 
joining property with a potential water supply was not available. In the past a state 
hydrologist had been consulted in deciding on the location of wells. The next time 
it was proposed to consult with state geologists as well. 

The board finally voted unanimously to borrow the additional $5000 and to 
authorize the trustees to borrow money from outside sources if an emergency should 
arise in redeeming bonds or coupons in the fall. 

The board also voted to cancel "Operation Renewal" with Leon Kilbreth, of 
Greensboro, scheduled in May. 

May 

It was announced that the Durham County Health Department had inspected the 
Yates Camp and had made some specific recommendations toward upgrading the 
water system, kitchen, and food storage facilities. 

It was voted to have extra board meetings on June 17, July 22, and August 12, IF 
NECESSARY. 

July 

The Finance Committee stressed the need of funds for the retirement of the 
bonds in the fall. It was revealed that 26 of the 47 churches, plus Page Road and 
Parkwood, had not had a part in "Quarter per Quarter" funds thus far. 

It was reported that two wells had been drilled at a cost of $3850, one producing 
V2 gallon per minute and one producing about 5 gallons per minute, and work had 
been stopped at that point. 

The coming Week of Prayer for Association Missions was stressed. 

September 

The Finance Committee announced a goal of 4% of the offering plate dollar as a 
basis of support from the churches for the 1970 budget. 

It was announced that Dr. W. L. Howse of the Baptist S. S. Board, Nashville, 
would teach "A Dynamic Church" at Temple on October 21. 

The Superintendent of Missions brought a recommendation from a representative 
group of youth leaders: that (1) a youth council be set up consisting of one senior 
high and one junior high representative from each church, that (2) a youth council 
advisory committee of 5 be authorized to work with these young people, (3) that the 
Committee on Committees be instructed to nominate such a committee at the annual 
meeting, and (4) that the following people be elected as a temporary committee until 
that time: Grady Long Chairman; Bob Oates, David Peach, Gary Moore, and Jim 
Staples. 

It was passed. 

Finally, a motion was passed to send a letter to the Durham City Council urging 
the adoption of a legally satisfactory Blue Law. 

October 

The wording of a letter to the Durham City Council was adopted as folows: 
"The official Board of the Yates Baptist Association, in session on Tuesday, 
October 14, voted to express itself (1) as pleased with the overwhelming vote by the 
council recently in favor of the revised Blue Law, (2) as regretting the delay caused 
by a legal technicality in the amendment, and (3) as urging the council to pursue its 



46 



Twenty-First Annual Session 



efforts with all haste to adopt a legally satisfactory law that will provide and secure 
for the future a uniform day of rest for the people of the Durham community." 

It was reported that the possible purchase and removal to the Yates Camp 
of the old Matthew Tyson Yates Homestead in the Mount Pisgah community seemed 
to be very remote at present. It was voted to table the matter for the time being. 

Mr. A. B. Stone, Jr., Chairman of the Finance Committee, brought the 1970 
Financial Goals for approval, stating that 1) it was a unified approach including the 
bond retirement, the WMU budget, as well as the regular budget items, 2) it included 
income anticipated from the Baptist State Convention and the Home Mission Board 
as well as from the churches, 3) it included increases in a few items of the missions 
section as we looked to meetings next year in preparation for the '70's, and 4) that 
the Finance Committee would be taking a hard look at all the financial goals in 
preparing the actual budget for the February board meeting. 

Three applications for state convention funds were presented and approved: 1) 
$2400 for office help, 2) $2500 for Garrett Road property, 3) parkwood Church's 
request for $1200 as supplement to pastor's salary. 

The Superintendent of Missions stressed the cost of printing the Minutes each 
year because of the number of copies printed (many of which are never used nor 
distributed in the churches) and also the number of pages. Mr. Mumford stated that 
the deletion of state convention reports in the association minutes would be quite ap- 
propriate according to the Research and Statistics Department of the Baptist S. S. 
Board, Nashville. The board thereupon voted to delete state convention reports from 
the minutes although the reports can be distributed in the Book of Reports and in 
other ways. 

Finally the moderator read a letter from the Olive Chapel Church thanking the 
Yates Association profusely for past courtesies and stating that it was joining the 
Raleigh Association because its people had so many ties with Raleigh rather than 
Durham. 

Instead of having so many separate reports presented this year, I have been asked 
to consolidate a few within my report as moderator. They follow. 

Histories of Angier Avenue and Red Mountain: (These histories are not included 
in the Book of Reports but should be included in the Minutes.) 

Although no time in the annual meeting is allotted for the following reports, 
they should be included in our printed minutes. 

Audio-Visual Aids: During the year we joined the CAVE plan in order to acquire 
audio-visuals through the Broadman Press at minimum cost. No additional equip- 
ment has been purchased but several filmstrips and slide sets have been acquired 
for the use of the churches. (Harold Moore, Chairman) 

Student Work: During the year a Church-Student Workshop was held at Grey 
Stone Church in Durham. Students from the B.S.U. organizations at U.N.C. and 
Duke made separate basic presentations relating to student life, challenges, and 
concerns. Discussions followed. One other panel member from North Carolina 
College could not be present. 

Analysis of the workshop: Excellent sharing — Attendance poor — Recommend 
other such workshops be held and that they be slightly more structured — Recommend 
a time when calendar is not so full and that pastors help support better attendance. 
(Delmar Parkerson, Chairman) 

Libraries: During the year members of the Committee visited several churches 
upon invitation. 

On April 14, 15 an Associational Workshop was held at Carrboro with Mr. Ralph 
Riley, Minister of Education of the Mount Vernon Baptist Church in Richmond and 
an approved consultant of the Church Library Department in Nashville, conducting 
the teaching sessions. One of the highlights of the meetings was the showing of the 



Yates Baptist Association 



47 



film "The Ministry of the Church Library." Topics for discussion were: cataloging, 
processing books, vertical files, audio-visuals, and promoting the use of the library 
materials. 

The Library staff of the Carrboro Baptist Church served as hosts for the sessions. 
(Mrs. W. Alvis Crabtree, Chairman) 

Ordinations: During the year October 1, 1968-October 1, 1969, the Ordinations 
Committee met as follows: 

November 15, 1968, at the request of Watts Street Church to examine Mr. Paul 
Clark, Jr., and Mr. Allen Page. 

July 22, 1969, at the request of Fieldcrest Church to examine Mr. John W. 
Hancock. 

September 11, 1969, at the request of Braggtown Church to examine Mr. Lawrence 
Bullard. 

After these candidates were examined, the respective churches were notified of 
the affirmative action of this committee and they proceeded with their plans to ordain 
these men into the Christian ministry. (Lawrence H. Knott, Chairman) 

Deacons: On November 26, 1968, the Evangelism & the Deacons Committees 
jointly sponsored a men's mass meeting at Yates Church. The main purpose of the 
meeting was to point the Crusade of the Americas. 

A program of songs, scripture and prayer preceded the message, "The Imprisoned 
Christ," by the Reverend Charles McMillan, Pastor of Kinnett Memorial Church 
in Burlington. Because of the unusually busy schedule in the association, no spring 
meeting was held. (D. W. Porterfield, Chairman) 

Christian Life: The Christian Life Committee held a number of meetings during 
the year. These meetings were held for the purpose of planning and presenting two 
conferences. 

The fourth associational Christian Life Conference was held at Watts Street 
Baptist Church, Durham, on January 13, 1969. The Conference Theme, "The Local 
Church Responding to the Crisis in the Nation," was presented by Dr. Victor T. 
Glass of the Home Mission Board. Various aspects of the main theme were explored 
in workshops on the following subjects: 1. "The Church and Social Welfare," 2. "The 
Church in an Urban Setting," 3. "The Church Working with Community Agencies," 
4. "Possibilities for Effective Christian Witness," 5. "Resolving Conflict within the 
Congregation." 

Later in the year the Committee joined the State Convention, Department of 
Inter-racial Cooperation, in co-sponsoring an Area Conference on Human Relations. 
This conference was held at Yates Baptist Church, Durham, on May 1, 1969. 
Principal speakers for the conference were Dr. W. R. Grigg and Dr. Emmanuel Mc- 
Call, associates in the Department of Work with National Baptists of the Home Mis- 
sion Board. 

In the year ahead the Committee will seek to find new ways of bringing special 
areas of Christian social concern to the attention of our churches and our people. 
Possibilities include a conference on citizenship and dramatic presentations by our 
young people on drugs, alcohol, etc. We will seek to maintain and strengthen our 
ties with fellow Christians from the Negro Baptist associations of our area. Plans for 
specific activities will be announced as they are developed. 

Members of the Committee who have served this year are: Carl N. Harris, E. L. 
Phillips, Reverend R. F. Smith, Jr., and Mrs. Henry Turlington. (Chris C. Hamlet, 
Chairman) 

Auditor: I have examined the statement of cash receipts and expenditures of the 
Yates Baptist Association for the calendar year ended December 31, 1968. My 
examination was made in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards and 
accordingly included such tests of the accounting records and such other auditing 



48 



Twenty-First Annual Session 



procedures as I considered necessary in the circumstances, except that it was not 
practical to extend my examination of income beyond the recorded receipts. 

In my opinion, the accompanying statement of cash receipts and expenditures 
presents fairly the recorded cash transactions of the Yates Baptist Association for the 
calendar year ended December 31, 1968, on a basis consistent with that of the 
preceding year.

Progress Report 

JUVENILE/ADULT REHABILITATION PROGRAM 

(Youth and Family Services) 

June 1, 1968 to the Present 

During the first few months of experimentation in this project, progress was slow. 
With comparatively no guidelines from any source and financial support a month to 
month proposition above and beyond the regular budget, the Christian Social Minis- 
tries Committee proceeded in faith and with the conviction that the Lord was in 
the effort. 

With the program included in the 1969 budget we have been able to give better 
concentration to the task at hand. Progress has been encouraging. Emphases, pro- 
cedures, and relationships have seemed to fall in place. Each month has brought 
greater satisfaction, understanding, and appreciation by church leaders, State Con- 
vention and Home Mission Board personnel. 

Let us share with you a few satisfying aspects of our ministry to unfortunates thus 

far. 

First, we have gained a good working relationship with John Umstead Hospital, 
Durham Unit, and the Alcoholic Rehabilitation Center, both at Butner. Several 
patients have come for counseling after being discharged. 

Second, an increasingly close relationship has been developed with the Durham 
County Dept. of Social Services (Welfare Dept.). I have had the privilege of visiting 
with caseworkers in homes of clients. In crisis situations we have supplied food, 
clothing and other necessities. At times like these we have also had opportunities to 
minister to their spiritual needs — in personal witnessing and by getting them in touch 
with a local church for a follow-up ministry. I have visited many patients, especially 
alcohoHcs, in hospitals and rest homes at the request of caseworkers. 

Third, we have developed a mutually helpful relationship with the judicial and 
penal departments of Durham City and County. As a result, several persons have 
been sent to rehabilitation centers rather than correctional institutions. I have been 
given permission to visit and work with persons in jail, prison camps, the courts, 
and even the County Home, where some are sent to work. 

Fourth, I have been serving as chaplain and a member of the board of directors 
of the Flynn Home on Holloway Street for male alcoholics. This includes a Bible 
study on Tuesday evenings and dropping in for coffee and fellowship from time to 
time. I have had many opportunities for talking with these men personally about 
their hopes and dreams for the future and about their relationship with the Lord. 

Fifth, we have had the opportunity to work with Mrs. Olga Davis and the 
Durham County Alcohol Information Center. She is doing an excellent service in the 
interest of prevention and treatment of alcoholism. 

Sixth, we have had several opportunities to cooperate with the Employment 
Security Commission, helping alcoholics and other unfortunate people to find em- 
ployment. Sometimes I have been the liaison between the unemployed person and 
the employer. 

Seventh, I have had many opportunities to counsel with people in my office on 
various problems — alcoholism, youth and marital problems. When these problems 
were too complex for me to handle, I referred them to the proper community agency 
for additional help. 

Eighth, we have provided training opportunities for the members of our churches. 
We held a Workshop on Alcoholism in the fall of 1968. We have just completed a 



50 



Twenty-First Annual Session 



School in Christian Social Ministries in September with speakers including a psy- 
chiatrist, a judge, a welfare worker, and a minister. We also had a Seminar on 
October 6 with classes in the areas of juvenile rehabilitation, adult rehabilitation, 
unfortunate people (aged, sick, cripple, etc.), non-readers, ex-prisoners and prisoners, 
unwed mothers, and abandoned young mothers and divorcees. 

Ninth, I have been invited to participate in the weekly staff meetings of the 
newly organized Durham County Community Mental Health Center, directed by Dr. 
John Giragos. 

Finally, I have had the privilege of speaking in about 25 of our Yates Association 
churches. I try to picture the extent of human need in our metropolitan area, and 
tell the people what our churches are doing cooperatively through the association to 
meet some of those needs. We have had many fine responses from churches with 
food, clothes, and money for benevolent purposes. Two or three churches sent in 
their V.B.S. mission offerings. Several people have responded by taking needy 
people to doctors, hospitals for treatment, to church clothes closets, even to stores. 

In the future we anticipate an even closer working relationship with the com- 
munity social agencies and more of our churches as they become better prepared for 
ministering to physical, mental and social as well as spiritual needs of people. We 
expect great service opportunities through the Durham County Community Mental 
Health Center. 

We are also looking forward to working more closely with the agencies and 
institutions of Chatham and Orange counties, especially Chapel Hill. One of our 
pastors is already working with Youth Corps in Chatham County. 

In working with Captain J. H. Belton and the Durham County Prison Depart- 
ment, I will have the privilege of a thirty-minute session with some of the men who 
are to be released within a month. They will be able to "speak their minds," tell 
where their families are, where they hope to live, what type of work they can do, 
and whether or not they have any assurance of work when they are released. I then 
may visit the family, see the living conditions, and check on the anticipated employ- 
ment. 

We hope to have a much closer working relationship with the Durham Unit at 
John Umstead Hospital, and the Alcoholic Rehabilitation Center, both at Butner. 
Already a better follow-up program for released persons has been initiated by Dr. 
Peter Holden, the director; there will be a better referral procedure to churches and 
a young man has been assigned to me for keeping track of persons who have been 
released. 

During the last few days of September I met with Mr. David Blackwelder, an 
instructor in the School of Chaplaincy of Duke University, and the Rev. Fred Terry, 
pastor of the West Durham Baptist Church, with a three-fold purpose: to get better 
acquainted, to discuss how greater emphasis could be given to mental health and 
counseling as a vital part of the ministry of the local church, and also to initiate 
plans for starting additional A. A. (Alcoholics Anonymous) Groups in the area, 
possibly among our black alcoholic friends or even at John Umstead Hospital, Dur- 
ham Unit. (In recent days we have also learned of the possibility of a group in 
Rougemont. ) 

We also hope to work more closely with personnel of the Employment Security 
Commission and the Vocation Rehabilitation program in helping these unfortunates 
to find employment. 

One area of major concern for the future is "Helping Youth in Trouble." We 
look forward to working more closely with experts in this field. We hope this 
program will include the "big brother" and a "big sister" approach with people in our 
churches. 

Already Dr. Sherrill Stevens, new chairman of the Christian Social Ministries 



Yates Baptist Association 



51 



Committee, Mr. Fred Elkins, chief probation officer of the Durham County Juvenile 
Courts, and I have had a very profitable preliminary meeting to discuss ways in 
which the churches of Yates Association can become more involved in working with 
youth in trouble and their families. 

Perhaps in the future we may be able to lend a hand to what is already being 
done in our conmiunity in the areas of foster home care and day-care for children 
of working mothers who cannot pay. 

We are also looking forward with great anticipation to the time when the Yates 
Camp will have adequate facilities for a much broader and more comprehensive 
program including a ministry for unfortunate youth. Only as we can see people 
brought closer together, and closer to God; only as we can see people overcoming 
their selfishness, their prejudices, their narrow concepts of the Christian life; only as 
we can see their enlarged understanding of the work of God in human personality as 
well as nature; only as we can see individuals "grow in grace and in the knowledge 
of Jesus" can we justify the $100,000 investment on Wake Forest Road. 

I look to the future with great optimism! 

Respectfully submitted, 
Boyce G. Kimball 



REPORT OF MISSIONS COMMITTEE 

During this past year it did not seem wise nor even possible to consider the pur- 
chase of any more land as a church site. As an association we will be making pay- 
ments on the Garrett Road property (between the old Chapel Hill Road and the 
Chapel Hill Boulevard) for two more years. Grey Stone Church is still making 
payments on the Cole Mill Road property as a possible church site. 

During the last twelve months the Page Road Church in the Bethesda community 
has been under the watchcare of the association. We recommend that this church 
be accepted into a full participating relationship with Yates Association with all the 
rights, privileges and responsibilities thereto. We rejoice in the progress already made 
by this new group (Membership 76, S.S. enrollment 95, Budget $17,380). 

We do, however, encourage them to seek a permanent location further from the 
mother church. In the past the association has urged a distance of approximately 
two miles so that church fields join, rather than overlap. 

We also recommend that the Parkwood Church be brought under the watchcare 
of the association for the coming year. It has been a mission of Yates Church since 
October 21, 1964. It was organized as a church this October 5 with 211 members. 
There have been 87 additions during the last association year.

A Summary of the Work 

CITY AND METROPOLITAN COMMITTEE— 
YATES BAPTIST ASSOCIATION 

Meeting at the Olive Branch Baptist Church October 28, 1964, Yates Association 
asked "the Moderator to appoint a Special Committee to study the needs and pos- 
sibilities of our Association's ministry in the inner city." Thus the "City and 
Metropolitan Missions Study Committee" came into being. A Committee v^as ap- 
pointed by the Moderator, but did not function. Meeting at Guess Road in 1966 the 
Association elected a new Committee to perform this study. This Committee has 
remained basically intact for the past three (3) years and has pursued its task with 
vigor, determination and dedication. 

We began our work three (3) years ago in an attempt to define and clarify 
our objectives. Our concern and interests seemed to naturally move in two directions. 
First, we felt we must understand the nature and character of the Metropolitan 
Durham area. Accordingly, studies were made of the population trends and con- 
centrations, projected land uses, plans for urban redevelopments, church locations 
and memberships, and thoroughfare projections. Secondly, we undertook a depth 
study of the nature and mission of an Association. This led us to look at our As- 
sociation in the light of it origin, past history, and purpose. It seemed to us that if 
we are going to be able to devise a program for our body, we must clearly under- 
stand who we are, where we are supposed to go, as well as how we are supposed to 
go there. As a committee we have tried to come to grips with our message, our mis- 
sion, and our method. If we can understand and agree upon the purpose and ob- 
jectives involved in the answers to these questions, then we will be able to project 
a program for the Association to pursue. 

On the surface, the answers to the questions above might seem simple and clearly 
defined. But a deeper look will reveal that the matter is quite complex. For example, 
there is no universal agreement as to the constituency of an Association. Is it made 
up to messengers or churches, or both? Again, there are divergent opinions regarding 
the basis of cooperation in an Association. Is it doctrinal, financial, mutual 
strengthening, or mission or fellowship? Or is it all of these? 

Developments within our Association since the last Annual Meeting have caused, 
not only our Committee, but the entire Association to become aware of the need 
to define an Association. This is a basic and fundamental need. We have occupied 
ourselves with an attempt to do this in our latest meetings. We have come to the 
place where we feel that the Association needs to define itself. When this is done, 



56 



Twenty-First Annual Session 



we will be able to pursue our task of attempting to develop a structure and program 
to suit the needs and possibilities of our day. 

J. R. Barbee 

SEEKING TO DEFINE AN ASSOCIATION! 

A Southern Baptist association is a channel through which Christ can 
work; it is made up of autonomous, cooperating Southern Baptist 
churches generally in a given area. Its work is carried out through 
individuals, activities, meeting and organizations, as it provides service 
to and implementation for its participating churches in Christian minis- 
tries and missions. (Drafted by Study Committee) 

Part of the task of re-structuring the work of an association is to set forth a clear 
definition of its purpose and function. This has required many hours of study. 

The churches of a Baptist Association work in cooperation with the Baptist State 
Convention and the Southern Baptist Convention, this being a voluntary relationship. 
In studying the constitutions of these larger bodies, it was noticed that the commonly 
shared purposes are the promotion of missions. Christian Education, evangelism, 
social services and other work pertaining to the Kingdom of God. For a church to 
be a member of either of these two bodies it must contribute financially to some 
object of the convention's work and be in sympathy with its purpose. 

Should associational membership requirements be more in line with State and 
Southern Baptist practices? 

There is also a growing conviction that the churches should be engaged in a 
broader outreach in seeking to minister to people outside the church fellowship. 
Heretofore the associational structure has been one focused on helping the churches — 
mainly in a promotional way. This is necessary but not all-inclusive. There is an 
honest attempt being made to apply the message of redemption to a sick society. 

We feel that the association should be something through which our Lord can 
work instead of something which we do for Him. We feel it should minister to the 
needs of the churches, but also provide a way for the Lord to use us in a collective 
way in a larger work. 

We sincerely present this definition for your thoughtful consideration.

WHAT THE ASSOCIATION HAS BEEN DOING 

Work presently being done by the Yates Association is indicated by referral to 
the minutes of the Twentieth Annual Session 1968. Particular attention is directed to 
the Business Proceedings PP 24-33 and to the Reports Section PP 34-69. The 
statistical tables show results numerically. 

The 1968 "Progress Report" of the City and Metropolitan Missions Study Com- 
mittee points out — 

1. That our churches are in a rapidly growing area. 

2. The needs of our churches are different these days from when our association 
was formed. 

3. That the Association has been looked upon as the "servant" of the churches, 
existing for the purpose of promoting and helping to strengthen the programs 
that are going on in the churches. 

4. That the Association has existed primarily for the benefit of the churches. 

5. That the Association should become an instrument through v/hich the churches. 



Yates Baptist Association

working together, can pursue mission objectives that they cannot pursue work- 
ing alone. 

6. That more emphasis should be placed on "mission" and less emphasis on 
church promotion. 

The Christian Social Ministries Committee, Mrs. W. M. Upchurch, Jr., Chairman, 
has taken the lead to determine the needs in the areas of illiteracy, alcoholism, 
narcotic addiction, mental health, juvenile delinquency, economically disadvantaged 
through workshops with experienced professional personnel in these fields. It might 
be said the Association has been helping the churchs in their promotion but now the 
emphasis is to help the churches help themselves. There are fewer promotional 
meetings. A minister for juvenile and adult rehabilitation has been employed, 
Reverend Boyce Kimball. 

Our conclusion is that the associational organizations need to be restructured to 
meet the needs we face today and shall face tomorrow. 

John Clayton 

WHAT THE ASSOCIATION OUGHT TO BE DOING 

These remarks are intended to be neither disparaging about the past nor all- 
conclusive about the future. Our committee work these past three years has both 
increased our appreciation of some of the things our association has been doing, and 
opened our eyes to the changing scene of mission endeavor. Much of what our 
association has endeavored to do in the past has been right and beneficial and should 
be continued, but a great deal of our effort has been largely wasted because 
cognizance was not taken of the unique challenges of an urban age. We, of this com- 
mittee, then advocate not the scuttling of our associational ship, but that it be 
refitted and that it embark on a new course. 

It would be helpful here to enunciate a few principles in our philosophy of as- 
sociational missions. 

(1) Our association, though autonomous, exists for the sake of the churches and the 
mission of such churches, not vice versa. 

(2) Our association, if it is to justify its existence, and in the interest of efficiency, 
should concentrate its energies on work that the churches cannot effectively do 
separately. To put it another way, the association should serve as an organizing 
center for mission activity on a scale broad enough to require the support of the 
combined resources and personnel of all the churches which constitute such an 
association. 

(3) Our association, because of the voluntary nature of its structure as an instru- 
ment of cooperative ministry, should not be thought of as a "super church," having 
all that the local church has organizationally except the congregation. Rather, it is 
construed to be an agency of the churches and completely dependent upon same for 
its support and direction. 

With these principles in mind, then, we propose that our association give priority 
to the following: 

(1) Serve as reservoir of the best programs and methods of church development, 
providing materials, audio- visuals, and tracts to those churches which request them; 

(2) Keep currently on file a list of resource personnel in the areas of church 
organization, Sunday School, Training Union, and mission organizations. With this 
file the associational office can serve as liaison between churches needing help and 
those persons qualified to give such help. 

(3) Suspend the formal organizations of Sunday School, Training Union, and Music 
after lists of qualified resource personnel have been established. 



58 



Twenty-First Annual Session 



(4) Provide organizational training opportunities based upon need expressed by a 
church or churches; 

(5) Create a Missions Committee including the Associational leaders in W.M.U. and 
Brotherhood, Chairman of EvangeHsm, and Chairman of Christian Social Ministries. 
This committee would lead the association to concentrate its time and leadership 
energies on mission opportunities in the Triangle area along the following lines: 

(a) Identify the needs of people in our area. 

(b) Devise programs for meeting these needs. 

(c) Discover interested personnel in our cooperating churches who would be 
willing to labor together to meet specific needs. 

(d) Experiment and innovate with various approaches until a workable solution 
is found for a given problem. 

(e) Enlist teams of laymen who believe in associational missions, having seen 
how fruitful it can be, to visit our churches by invitation and tell the story 
of what is being done. In this way both prayer and financial support will 
grow. 

(f) Enlarge the associational staff as mission projects are increased and financial 
resources become available. Our ministry of juvenile-adult rehabilitation is. 
a first step in this direction. Mathews 

RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE REPORT 

Resolved, that 

We bring to mind the words of the Apostle Paul in the spirit of this Thanksgiving 
season . . . "Thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus 
Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmoveable, always abound- 
ing in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in 
the Lord." (1 Cor. 15:57) 

We thank the Moderator, Bruce C. Little for his untiring patience in conducting 
the business of the meeting; the Clerk, Harrell Perry for his quiet faithfulness in 
recording the business of the meeting; the Associational Missionary, Hubert Mum- 
ford in his untiring efforts to promote the business of the Lord in the Yates Associa- 
tion; the Program Committee in their foresight for planning a suitable agenda in 
keeping with the limited time available to messengers; the other Committees in the 
constancy of their work to produce a report from the year's activity; and the others 
who contributed to the inspiration and implementation of the program. 

We thank the Yates Baptist Church and the Gorman Baptist Church for their 
provision of food and hospitality to the messengers; and the First Baptist Church for 
the use of its sanctuary and facilities for the "M" night program. 

We recall with thanksgiving the memory of those beloved dead who have 
departed from our midst during the past year into the presence of the Lord. 

We beseech the prayer of this Association for our country and the ideals of those 
who established it upon Christian principles; we beseech the prayer of this Associa- 
tion for our youth and for wisdom to guide them in Christian paths; we pray for the 
ministry of this Association in all walks of life, as the personal responsibihty of each 
member of our constituent churches. 

We express our gratitude to the Lord Jesus Christ for His spiritual and material 
blessings in our midst and beseech Him for guidance in the work of this Association 
in the coming year. May He challenge us to reach upward and outward to greater 
goals in the Kingdom work. Gratefully submitted,

Carolina. 

Membership 

Article 2. The Association in sess'on shall be composed of the duly elected mes- 
sengers from the cooperating Baptist Churches in Durham County and its adjacent 
territory, the regularly elected officers of the Association, and the members of the

Article 3. Each church shall be represented at the annual meeting of the As- 
sociation and at any special meeting during the year by messengers who shall be duly 
certified, and in the following ratio: 

(1) Three for the first hundred members or fraction thereof and one for each 
additional hundred or fraction thereof, provided that the total number of 
messengers shall not exceed ten. 

(2) All pastors of churches of the Association shall be recognized as messengers, 
in addition to those specified above. 

Article 4. Churches seeking to seat messengers in the Association shall apply to 
the Missions Committee prior to the annual meeting of the Association, giving evi- 
dence of their faith and order and their agreement to be received under the watchcare 
of the Association. Upon recommendation of the committee and the approval of the 
Association by a two-thirds majority of the members present and voting, the church 
or churches shall be received under the watchcare of the Association for a period of 
one year. It is understood that during the period of watchcare such churches will be 
accorded all the services of the Association and all its privileges with the exception of 
the right to seat voting messengers and to voting representation on the Associational 
Board. At the end of the year of watchcare, the church or churches may, by a two- 
thirds vote of the Association, be received into full fellowship of the Association or 
continued under watchcare or have the request for fellowship rejected. Upon admis- 
sion to full fellowship, the church or churches shall be authorized to seat duly elected 
messengers with voting privileges and voting members on the Associational Board. 

Article 5. The Association shall have power, upon giving notice of nine months 
and by two-thirds majority vote of messengers present and voting, to withdraw 
fellowship from any church that shall willfully depart from orthodox principles of 
the Christian religion as taught in the Bible and as believed by Baptists, or that fails 
to represent itself either by messenger or by letter at the annual session of the 
Association without sufficient reason, or that fails to support causes fostered by the 
denomination at large and of this Association in particular, or that ceases to be 
missionary in practice. 

Article 6. Any church may decline to send messengers to the Association at its 
pleasure. Whenever this constitutes a withdrawal of fellowship on the part of the 
church, the Association shall not as a body, or through a representative or repre- 
sentatives, seek to restrain by coercion or law the withdrawal action of the church.

Report Section 



HISTORY OF GREY STONE BAPTIST CHURCH 

The West Durham Baptist Church was organized on October 21, 1894, as a 
mission of the First Baptist Church of Durham, holding its meetings in a building on 
what is now Ninth Street. There were seventeen charter members and the Rev. W. A. 
Smith became pastor in 1896. Only one charter member, Mrs. Dora Melvin Agner, 
survives. 

On June 18, 1897, the church building was destroyed by a tornado. Three days 
later the membership met and voted to erect a building on Blacknall Street, now 
Alexander Avenue. From 1896-1927 pastors serving the church in constant growth 
were the Rev. Smith, J. C. Owens (interim), W. C. Barrett, C. S. Cashwell, C. A. 
Sigman, O. W. Triplette, E. S. Pierce, B. V. Ferguson, J. Ben Eller, T. M. Green and 
Edward Stubblefield. 

In 1927 when Rev. C. F. Hudson was called as pastor the church membership 
had exceeded eight hundred. During this time the church had to choose between mak- 
ing extensive improvements to the old building or building a new one. On March 8, 
1933, the church voted to buy a site at the corner of 15th Street and Hillsborough 
Road and adopted plans for the new building. The cornerstone was laid in July of 
1933. Lack of funds delayed the work of the building. Rev. Hudson resigned on 
October 31, 1935. 

Rev. B. E. Morris was called and began his work on the first Sunday in Janu- 
ary of 1936. He soon convinced the church leaders that it was time to complete the 
new building. On January 26 of the same year the building committee reported to a 
called conference and recommended that the building be completed. The church 
entered its new building on August 2, 1936. 

On May 16, 1943, the church voted to establish a nursery school and purchased 
a house located at 2618 Hillsborough Road. The school opened October 18, 1943, 
with an enrollment of 8 pupils, a superintendent, and 3 helpers. In 1952 the old 
nursery building was sold and and the school moved to its present location, next to 
the church, on land purchased from the Erwin Mills. A personnel building also 
was built across 15th Street. 

The growth of the City of Durham, the birth of several new churches in the 
vicinity of West Durham and a conflict with a church with the same name made it 
desirable that the West Durham Baptist Church name be changed. On Sunday 
morning, December 11, 1949, the members carefully considered a list of names 
and selected the name of Grey Stone Baptist Church by a majority vote. 

In 1956 Erwin Mills gave a house and a lot at 222 Alexander Avenue and a 
mission was started. (Duke University has purchased this property and the mission 
has been closed.) 

Rev. Morris enjoyed a period of 21 fruitful years and resigned on December 21, 
1956, to go to Charlotte, N. C, for retirement. Rev. Malbert Smith, Jr., became the 
present pastor on August 4, 1957. 

The Sunday School continued to grow and the need for additional space was 
recognized. In 1960 plans for a new building were adopted. The building was com- 
pleted at a cost of $200,000 and the Sunday School began to utilize the new fa- 
cility in 1962. 

A Family Night Program was started in November 1957, and still serves as 



Yates Baptist Association 



33 



a means for fellowship, organizational meetings, choir rehearsals and worship ser- 
vice. Moments of Meditation is provided by calling a local number. The Grey 
Stone Seniors was organized several years ago for elderly members of the church 
and their friends. This provides them with Bible Study, fellowship, meals, ceramics 
and occasional trips. 

Under the direction of Mr. James Staples, who came to the church in November 
of 1965 as Minister of Music-Youth, the church now has five choirs, several en- 
sembles and an outstanding youth program. The Youth Choir goes on a tour each 
year, singing and witnessing in many cities throughout the United States. This 
choir and the ensemble groups perform for many Civic Clubs and other functions. 
Youth Retreats are scheduled for several times a year. 

The church membership has had an extensive growth under the leadership of 
Pastor Smith, the membership now being 2,150. The budget has grown from 
$49,837.20 in 1957 to $165,000.00 in 1969. The Day School will have an enrollment 
this coming year of approximately 150. 

Some other highlights are: Three parking lots located adjacent to the church 
property; personnel building has been converted to a youth building; T. V. Program 
"World and the Word" to be resumed shortly; plans are underway for a new kitchen 
and dining area; and future plans for expansion. 

Value of church property is $1,200,000.00 



HISTORY OF EPHESUS BAPTIST CHURCH 

Within the community that came to be known as Ephesus, around 1875, there 
began to arise a need for a place to worship; so with the help of S. M. Pope, G. E. 
Pope and a Methodist minister, Rev. P. H. Massey, the need began to be erased. 
With the help of Mr. Massey, services were held under a brush arbor that the Pope 
brothers had built. For about 6 years services were held under the arbor or in homes 
in the form of prayer meetings; and then, around 1881, a house of worship was 
built with the gifts of materials and personal labor on land donated by S. M. Pope. 

Mr. Massey continued to work with the people until in 1891 he told them that 
unless they organized a Baptist church, he would organize a Methodist church. On 
December 11, 1891, with the aid of 15 charter members from the neighboring 
Berea Baptist Church, Pope's Chapel was organized. The name was soon changed 
to Ephesus and Mr. J. C. Hocutt was called as the first pastor. The first church 
clerk was L. W. Leigh, and the first deacons were George E. Pope and A. N. Leigh. 
George E. Pope was the first Sunday School Superintendent. 

In October 1892, the church was voted into the association and these minutes 
include some of its first records. There had been added to the church roll by letter, 
Wily and Geneva Blackwood and J. C. Hocutt, with five being baptized at Pickett's 
Mill on the first Sunday in September. These were Teck Pope, G. M. Pope, Vella 
Leigh, C. A. Pope, and R. H. Blackwood. The Sunday School enrollment was 54, 
and the total school expenses were $4.50. 

Many people during the next years shared in the work and the blessings at 
Ephesus. John T. Pope was the second clerk, followed by C. R. Pope who served 
in this capacity for 35 years. The second baptizing was held in September 1893, also 
at Pickett's Mill, and included J. A. Sparrow, J. W. King, R. H. Pope, G. D. King 
and Salena Pope. 

The church building remained unpainted and unimproved during these early 
years. Many students from Carolina walked through the woods in those days and 
helped with the worship, or in any way they could. A well was dug in 1906 at the 
cost of $18.50 and this became the outside gathering spot for the younger generation. 
The students talked the members into enlarging the auditorium by adding an enclosed 



34 



Twenty-Second Annual Session 



vestibule to the south for the pulpit and then urged the members to paint the church 
(white trimmed in green). G. D. King was elected deacon alpout this time. 

G. M. Pope and his family had moved away from the community for several 
years, but they returned in 1918. He soon assumed the office of Sunday School 
Superintendent which he held for over 20 years, along with other faithful duties 
which he has continued to perform at Ephesus. About the time of his return to the 
community, G. M. Pope and J. W. Cannady were elected deacons of the church. 
Many things began to go forward around this era. 

The W, M. IJ. was organized in 1921 and Mrs. Myrtle Spaulding was the first 
President. Then Mrs. G. M. Pope was elected President and she served in this office 
for 19 years. The W.M.U. through its missionary endeavor has been felt around 
the world due to the devoted efforts of the women at Ephesus. 

The first Building Committee was elected in February 1922 composed of G. M. 
Pope, W. C. Hudson, and J. W. King. The original church building was covered and 
two Sunday School rooms added at a cost of $382.41. 

Many pastors had served during this time; some of them serving twice. About 
1923 we began to receive from Wake Forest able ministerial students, who though 
they did not stay long, left a lasting impression on the people and on the church. 

Although we had had a B.Y.P.U. organization for years, the first B.Y.P.U. Di- 
rector, B. W, Clark, was elected in January 1934. B. W. Clark and S. M. Green 
had been ordained as deacons sometime prior to this date and both men worked 
diligently in all phases of the Lord's work at Ephesus. 

Around 1934 a need for a Recreation Center arose, and a log cabin was built 
with a small kitchen in the rear. Many wonderful suppers were held here and many 
good projects were financed for the good of the church. An increase in enrollment 
began to be noticed at this time, along with the need for more room. The Young 
People's Class with their teacher, B. W. Clark, began to discuss this need and de- 
cided to do something about it. A supper was held on January 16, 1943, in the 
church cabin, with Mr. and Mrs. B. W. Clark acting as host and hostess, and the 
proposal that we build a new church at Ephesus was presented with goals and plans 
for getting the job done. The Church approved the plan. Many projects were en- 
gaged in by the congregation. One was to purchase surplus Camp Butner barracks, 
tear them down, and move them so the lumber could be used for the church and 
parsonage. 

On May 3, 1948, C. R. Pope turned the first spade of ground to begin the 
new church. Prior to this ceremony, the old church had been moved from its site 
and the cabin had been doubled in size to accommodate the congregation while the 
new building was being built. The menfolk cut and hauled the logs for the cabin, 
but the building was erected mostly through the efforts of W. C. Hudson and Gordon 
Pope. A parsonage had been built at the same time the church was being built on 
land donated by B. W. Clark. 

In October 1948 we moved into the new church. This was a proud moment for 
all, and a day that C. R. Pope on January 22, 1943, had prayed to be allowed to 
see. 

On October 14, 1951, at a Homecoming Day, the mortgage was burned by C. R. 
Pope, indicating that the church was ours — a momentous moment in the lives of all. 

Ephesus was growing in nurture and admonition of the Lord and in 1957 an- 
other ground-breaking exercise was held to begin an annex for the already over- 
crowded church. C. R. Pope, as the oldest living member of the church, and Curtis 
R. Booker, as the youngest member, took part in this ceremony. 

The last building project to date has been the building of a $25,000 parsonage 
adjacent to the church. On April 4, 1965 G. M. Pope turned the first spade of earth 
to begin this project. This project was completed in the fall of 1965.

On December 11, 1966 Ephesus celebrated its 75th anniversary recalling its 
humble beginning, citing its progress during the years and projecting hope for a great 
future in the Lord. Since that date some physical improvements have included tap- 
ping on to the Chapel Hill water supply, remodeling and installing heat in our recrea- 
tional cabin (which long ago officially became the Scout Hut) and air conditioning 
our Church Sanctuary. 

Untold names and people have had a part in the history of Ephesus for the past 
79 years. No one is outstanding, it has taken the sweat and prayers of everyone to 
enable us to say we are proud to be called Ephesians. By comparing the records, we 
note that the 1892 budget was $90.00 compared to $32,000 for 1970. Church enroll- 
ment in 1892 was 24 compared to 382 in 1970 and Sunday School enrollment in 
1892 was 54 compared to 274 in 1970. The Lord has richly blessed us with every 
good gift, and under His direction, we know we will continue to advance the cause 
of Christ's kingdom on this earth.

Twenty-Second Annual Session 



Childress, Youth (12-17); Rev. Malcolm Cadd, Adult (18 up). I have the respon- 
sibility of coordinating the work and leading the General Officers. 

The activities of the year include a two-day training clinic, The 70's Conference, 
held in Greensboro, January 20-21. Next came the Yates Planning the 70' s Clinic, 
at Yates Church on February 17. On March 9, Burrel F. Lucas, of Raleigh, led our 
pastors in a review of "Administering the Bible Teaching Program." Then came our 
two Vacation Bible School Clinics at Park View Baptist Church. These clinics 
(morning and evening) were held on April 21 with approximately 300 attending 
the two sessions. This work was led by our V. B. S. staff who attended the State 
Clinic, January 5-7, at Wingate College. Assisting us in this clinic we had Mrs. 
Lannie Harwood, Primary Worker, and Miss Nannie Mae Herndon, Beginner 
Worker, in addition to Rev. Cadd and Rev. Childress. The final meetings in prepara- 
tion for the new Bible Teaching Program came September 21, 22 and 24 at Grey 
Stone at which time an age group approach was led by our stalf. In these three 
evenings, approximately one-third of our churches and two hundred people were 
assisted in their local church work. 

We are planning at least one more activity for this Fall. Seventeen Sunday School 
Directors have asked that we provide a one night question and answer meeting 
early in November. The purpose of this one evening activity will be to help provide 
the answers to the questions and problems that may have arisen in the first month 
of the new program. We will be writing you about this meeting. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Ray L. Cumbee, Director 

REPORT OF THE BROTHERHOOD 

The Associational program has, as all other departments of Southern Baptist 
Convention, been geared to the "Shaping of the Seventies." The meetings for said 
planning have been held in order from Murphy to Manteo for organizational in- 
structions. The portfolio has just about been completed. 

Ready to go to work, the workshop was efficiently manned by our Baptist 
Men's Consultant, Brother Ben Connell from Brotherhood office in Memphis, Ten- 
nessee, September 14- 15th at Grace Church. 

The transition of the Sunbeams to the Royal Ambassadors will give new blood 
to the Brotherhood, rendering the entire school program in two sections of activity 
first through six, and seven through twelve gradewise. Then, the husband, wife, or 
man, woman team counselors may act to complete a needed cycle for ages six 
through eight. 

This year has revealed new impetus to mission study, activity, and approaching 
fruition of planned purpose appears on the horizon. He must move forward to- 
gether!

Claiborne C. Ross, Director

REPORT OF CHRISTIAN SOCIAL MINISTRIES COMMITTEE 

The Christian Social Ministries Committee has endeavored during 1969-70 to 
encourage the continued development of this area of Christian service. The work of 
the committee has followed two parallel and closely interrelated lines. These are: 
(1) Encouraging the churches to become more involved in Christian Social Min- 
istries, and (2) Giving support and guidance to our local program of Youth and 
Family Services which is a cooperative ministry jointly supported by Yates As- 
sociation, the North Carolina Baptist State Convention, and the Home Mission Board 
of the Southern Baptist Convention. 

Specific illustrations of things the committee has done to encourage people 



\ 



38 



Twenty-Second Annual Session 



in the churches to become more active in Christian Social Ministries are: (1) Pro- 
vided Haison to encourage the Associational Youth Organization to gather and give 
small personal Christmas gifts to 115 teen-aged youth in rehabilitative confinement 
at C. A. Dillon School in Butner, (2) Prepared and presented a program of infor- 
mation and challenge concerning Christian Social Ministries at the annual Yates 
Association Brotherhood Ladies Night at Temple Church on January 27, 1970, and 
(3) Sponsored a major training conference on Youth Development and Re- 
habilitation at Edgemont Church on May 7, 1970. In addition we have encouraged 
the people of the churches to support the food pantry and clothes closet which are 
vital to the local ministry of Youth and Family Services. The committee conducted 
a survey during the year in an attempt to discover for your information what the 
local churches are doing in the area of Christian Social Ministries. The number and 
scope of these projects are encouraging. We learned that 41 churches are helping 
with food for needy families, and 24 churches are helping with clothes. Three 
churches have tutorial programs, 4 churches have programs for retarded persons, 
and 5 churches have work in the area of juvenile rehabilitation. More than half 
of the churches reported some work with the various institutions at Butner. A broad 
variety of other ministry projects was reported also. 

The work of the Rev. Boyce Kimball is a cooperative ministry for which pri- 
mary guidance is provided by this associational committee. We present for infor- 
mation and historical record some indication of the scope of that program during 
the past year. His work included 287 counseling sessions with 104 problem drinkers 
or members of their families. He assisted in the admission of 37 persons to the Al- 
coholic Rehabilitation Center at Butner, and did followup work with 23 of these 
after release. Boyce made 38 visits to the Flynn Fellowship Home for Alcoholics 
at which he conducted a regular Bible teaching program. He had 9 speaking engage- 
ments with 5 AA groups. During the year he made 26 visits in court and jail on be- 
half of alcoholics and others in trouble. A new work has been developed in which 
he seeks to assist persons being released from confinement at the Guess Road Prison 
Camp to make the transition back into open society. Boyce has already worked with 
29 of these releasees and their families. Working with the Durham County Depart- 
ment of Social Services, and using the resources of the associational pantry which 
are supplied by the churches, he has assisted 176 families including 613 persons with 
food, clothes, or money. He has been called on for 94 speaking engagements in 44 
of our churches. He has spoken about his work before 3 civic clubs and 23 social 
service groups. 

When we consider what has been done we are grateful to God and to Yates 
Association Baptists. When we study our planning charts showing some of the things 
that need to be done, we find an exciting challenge for Christian service open before 
us. We urge increased active involvement of the churches in Christian Social Min- 
istris and continued faithful support for the local program of cooperative ministry 
in Youth and Family Services. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Sherrill Stevens, Chairman 

REPORT OF DEACON'S COMMITTEE 

Watts Street Church was host church on November 25, 1969, for the Deacon's 
Forum. Dr. Garland A. Hendricks, Professor of Church-Community Develop- 
ment, delivered the address. His topic was, "Do's and Don't's When Calling a 
Pastor." 

Because of the many churches in our area without a pastor, it was felt by the 
Associational Deacons, that this would be a very timely and helpful topic, and that 



Yates Baptist Association 



39 



the many pulpit committees who are now seeking a pastor could use the informa- 
tion obtained advantageously. 

Following the address by Dr. Hendricks, the audience had an opportunity to 
ask Dr. Hendricks and three other experts questions from the floor. The three other 
participants were Mr. Robert Bruhn, Administrative Assistant of N. C. Baptist 
State Convention, Mr. Roy Watson, Layman from Durham Memorial Church, and 
Rev. B. E. White, Pastor of Park View Church. 

A very lively discussion followed with a great deal of interest being placed on 
the subject. Because of the unusual interest shown, the Associational ofRce has made 
available, in booklet form, the address as delivered by Dr. Hendricks. Pulpit com- 
mittees may obtain these forms from the Associational office. Our next meeting is 
expected to be held in January of 1971. 

Respectfully submitted, 

D. W. Porterfield, Chairman 

REPORT OF INSTITUTIONAL COMMITTEE 

The Institutional Committee met early in the year and discussed methods of 
communicating with the churches concerning our institutions and the best manner 
for promoting our three special offerings — Hospital, Homes for the Aging, and 
the Childrens' Homes. 

Since many churches are contributing through unified budgets to these institu- 
tions, 'Appreciation Day" should be observed in our churches at the appropriate 
time in the year. 

Each chairman was asked to send out mail at the appropriate time to the 
churches in observance of 'Appreciation Day," asking interested members in the 
churches to help promote and enlighten the people in the various organizations, 
for we know informed people will respond to these great causes. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. W. Jethro Broadwell, Chairman 

REPORT OF YOUTH COUNCIL ADVISORY COMMITTEE 

Due to an increasing awareness of a concern for youth expressed by many of 
our associational leaders the Youth Council Advisory Committee was formed this 
past year. After several meetings an organization was established for a Youth 
Council. Each church was asked to elect or appoint two representatives, one from 
the Junior High School division and one from the Senior High School division, to 
serve on the council. Response was made by sixteen of our churches for the first 
meeting. During the year eight more churches have sent representatives. 

The Youth Council has met regularly the first Sunday of each month and is 
continuing this year with this schedule. The young people who have participated 
have shown a great interest in the council and have carried out several projects 
with great enthusiasm. This has been a most encouraging work. 

One major project has been a newspaper, the Yates Yell, that has had four edi- 
tions this year. The purpose of the newspaper is to inform the churches of the ac- 
tivities of the Youth Council and of the youth in our churches. An attempt has 
been made to distribute it to all of our churches. 

Associational Youth Night, held March 14, was a project of the Youth Council. 
Several churches and many young people took part on the program. The meeting 
was well attended with twenty-nine churches represented. 

A Mission Vacation Bible School was sponsored by the Youth Council with 



40 



Twenty-Second Annual Session 



several churches helping in some way. The school was held in a rented duplex 
home located on Mangum Street at Cleveland Street. An average attendance of 
seventy-five attested to the need of such a project. Churches wishing to sponsor such 
a school next summer are encouraged to do so through our associational organi- 
zations. 

The Advisory Committee members have served as advisors to the Youth Coun- 
cil through working with the Youth Council organization. This has been our func- 
tion and our work over the past year. I wish to thank those who have served so 
faithfully on the committee, the Youth Council, its president, Martin Rigsbee, and 
the youth of Yates Association for their work and their enthusiastic response. 

This is a new organization within our Association. We encourage your participa- 
tion and your suggestions for a better way to serve you. 

Respectfully submitted, 
David G. Peach, Chairman 



REPORT OF THE MUSIC COUNCIL 

The Music Council of the Yates Baptist Association met five times during the 
past season in executive meetings to plan the work of the council for the season, 
and make some tentative plans for the next year. 

On Sunday afternoon, October 19, 1969, the ninth annual Yates Association 
Hymn Sing was held at Grace Baptist Church. Choirs from Hope Valley, Trinity, 
Mount Hermon, Grace, and Braggtown participated. Hymns were favorites of mem- 
bers of the Yates Association churches — chosen in a poll taken throughout the 
member churches. There was a good attendance for this inspiring and enjoyable 
hour of worship and praise through song. 

A choir was used for the opening of each session (Tuesday morning, Tuesday 
afternoon, and Wednesday morning) of the 1969 Annual Associational meeting in 
October. This Associational Choir did a grand job and contributed in a fine way to 
the three worship periods. 

The Annual Chotal Clinic for choir members and music leaders in the churches 
was held at Watts Street Baptist Church on Monday, February 23, 1970. About 
50 people attended, representing 20 churches. Guest leader for the clinic was Dr. 
William G. Sasser of Rocky Mount. The largest attendance of any one church were 
those from Ebenezer. 

The council wishes to commend very highly the youth choir work done by the 
associational youth council, and those who lead them. James Staples directed this 
fine group in a number of performances of the folk musical "Good News" at the 
N. C. State Fair in 1969. Many excellent reports were given as to these appearances 
of the group. As this is written, the group is scheduled to give several performances 
this year at the fair of "Tell It Like It Is." This group has done an exceptional job, 
and continues to be a blessing to many. 

Also as this report is being prepared, the Music Council is making final plans 
for the 1970 Hymn Sing, the 1970 Annual Meeting (associational choir for this 
meeting), and the 1971 Choral Clinic scheduled for February 22. 

We would like to say again, as we have in the past, that we, the members of 
the Yates Association Music Council, stand ready to give assistance to any church 
of the association, so far as time, opportunity, and ability permit. Call on us. We 
will help in any way we can. 

Respectfully submitted, 
John T. Laverty, Director

REPORT OF ORDINATIONS COMMITTEE 

During the year October 1, 1969 — October 1, 1970, the Ordinations Committee 
met on May 4, 1970, 

(1) at the request of Watts Street Church to examine Mr. William Hall 

(2) at the request of Angier Avenue Church to examine Mr. Art Fore. 

After these candidates were examined, the respective churches were notified 
of the affirmative action of this committee and they proceeded with their plans to 
ordain these men into the Christian ministry. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Lawrence H. Knott, Chairman 

REPORT OF LIBRARY COMMITTEE 

In January the Yates Association had representation at a Library Leadership 
Workshop in Greensboro with approved consultants conducting the sessions and 
one held in Raleigh in February. 

An Associational Workshop was held at Yates Baptist Church in February. 
Main purpose: To acquaint churches with the ordering and processing new church 
literature. 

The Library Committee will visit churches in need of assistance upon invitation. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Elizabeth S. Fisher, Chairman 

REPORT OF WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 

The year 1970 has found Woman's Missionary Union with an unchanging purpose 
and minimum organizational changes. The year has been a progressive one for 
many of our church WMU's with mission action spearheading the move forward. 

The theme of the year was "Living the Spirit of Christ in Belief and Relevance." 
The 1969-70 Watchword was taken from 1 John 3:18 — "Our love should not be 
just words and talk; it must be true love, which shows itself in action." 

The annual WMU meeting was held April 14 at the Guess Road Church with 333 
in attendance. Highlighting the evening was an appearance of "Miss North Car- 
olina," Miss Patsy Johnson of Winston-Salem. The content of her speech was con- 
temporary and pertinent to the Christian in today's world. Her musical selection of 
Gounod's "O Divine Redeemer" was superably executed and enjoyed by those attend- 
ing. Miss Kathryn Bullard, WMS (BW) Director of State WMU previewed the minor 
changes and presented names of new curriculum materials, and age-groupings. Mrs. 
Calhoun Johnson, Missionary to Chile brought an inspiring close to our meeting. The 
spirit of God could be felt as this dedicated lady spoke of the importance of the home 
life here in America and in Chile. Music for the meeting was led by David Pierceall, 
Minister of Music at Guess Road. Group I Chairman, Miss Peggy Clayton, was 
hostess for the meal. 

Dr. John Eddins, Professor of Theology of Southeastern Seminary, was guest 
speaker at the bi-annual meeting held at Mt. Moriah August 24th. Mrs. C. E. 
Brown, Associational WMU Associate Director presided and guest soloist was Mac 
Meredith of Grace Church. There were 69 in attendance. 

In June a prayer retreat was held at Camp Mundo Vista near Asheboro. Mrs. 
V. J. Chance presented a most inspiring program for so apt a setting for prayer. 
Rev. and Mrs. Harry Byrd, Missionaries to Guatemala concluded the service telling 
us about their experiences in Guatemala. 

The WMU Leadership Workshop was held at Grace Church, September 14, 15, 



42 



Twenty-Second Annual Session 



and 17th, with 258 enrolled. Age-level conferences were provided and proved to be 
beneficial in helping new leaders to become more prepared for 'their tasks. 

The Youth Organizations of the association have held quarterly meetings with 
well planned programs. The Sunbeam Band held its fourth consecutive Day Camp 
at the Yates Campground under the leadership of Mrs. E. F. Dollar. 

The Woman's Missionary Union ministry at Murdoch Center is continuing with 
Fifth Sunday visitation to the cottages at the Center. Also there are five churches, 
Angier Avenue, First, Page Road, Grey Stone, and Grace, who minister monthly 
to the Gateway House. 

The outreach possibilities for ministries is numberless through the organization 
of Woman's Missionary Union, and it is an earnest desire of our women that needs 
of people might be met through our organizations. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. Robert E. Gray, Director 

REPORT OF "SHAPING THE 70'S" COMMITTEE 

The Yates Baptist Associational Shaping the Seventies Clinic was held at Yates 
Baptist Church on February 17, 1970. Every church but five was represented with 
one or more persons present at the Clinic with a total attendance of over 300. Since 
the initial clinic all the major organizations have had follow-up sessions in their 
respective meetings. The leaders of these organizations have done a tremendous job 
in preparing the people in the churches of our association for the changes of the 
seventies. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Robert E. Gray, Chairman 

REPORT OF STUDENT WORK COMMITTEE 

In student work, 1969-70 was a year of dormancy. No money was budgeted 
for student work. Nor did the committee do any meaningful work with students. 

The committee did meet with the Baptist chaplains of Duke and U. N. C, and 
the chairman met twice at length with the Superintendent of Missions and Jim 
Greene, State B.S.U. Secretary, in an attempt to find plausible ways of relating our 
churches to the students of local campuses. 

Pursuit of the local inquiry awaits completion of a state-wide study being made 
by Dr. Crouch and a study committee which is evaluating all student work. Hope- 
fully the state study, and our own, will produce some practical suggestions for more 
mutually helpful relationships between local university students and Yates churches. 

Until a revised approach is offered three suggestions about student work are 
made: (1) that every church try to maintain close and meaningful contact with all 
its students, (2) that churches interested in students at local campuses try to estab- 
Hsh a working relationship with chaplains and student groups, (3) that the com- 
mittee, reduced in size, continue its attempt to find suitable ways of promoting work 
with students. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Robert Winecoff, Chairman 

REPORT OF NON-EVANGELICAL COMMITTEE 

The Non-Evangelical Committee has concerned itself this year with under- 
standing other faith groups and trying to create working relationships with them. 
We have met with Jewish and Catholic leaders for discussions dealing with creating 



Yates Baptist Association 



43 



a climate of respect for our faith groups. We have shared in a service at the local 
Synagogue and heard of our faith-roots in the Jewish faith as seen in the Old Testa- 
ment. We have sought to find many ways to present Christianity as understanding 
as well as missionary. 

We hope that the climate for mutual efforts and respect has been improved 
through our efforts. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Aubrey Quakenbush, Chairman 

REPORT OF MISSIONS COMMITTEE 

The Missions Committee recommends the addition of Parkwood Baptist Church 
into our Association. 

Our committee will have suggestions for a telephone survey for our churches 
to consider next spring (1971). 

Respectfully submitted, 
Malbert Smith, Jr., Chairman 

REPORT OF THE FELLOWSHIP COMMITTEE 

The duty of this committee is to promote a good relationship between pastors 
and churches and to serve in an advisory capacity upon request whenever the 
fellowship of any church is endangered. 

In compliment with this assignment the chairman assisted in the fall deacons' 
forum and helped with the publication by the Association of "Do and Don't When 
Calling a Pastor" by Dr. Garland Hendricks. In addition, other publications about 
the work of the pulpit committee were made available to the churches in the as- 
sociational office. 

The committee completed its fourth and last survey and study about the relation- 
ship between pastors and churches — "Pastors' Feelings about Pulpit Committees." This 
and the previous surveys by the committee are also available at the associational 
office. 

Respectfully submitted, 
B. E. White, Jr., Chairman 

REPORT OF EVANGELISM COMMITTEE 

The EvangeHsm Committee in assuming its responsibility adopted the following 
guidelines: 

a. To be inconspicuous as a committee, working prayerfully to undergird the 
work of evangelism in our association; 

b. To seek to implement evangelism on an area-wide level; 

c. To provide sound inspiration toward a continuing concern for the unsaved; 
and, 

d. To stimulate direct, personal evangelism among our people. 

Recognizing specifically that the role and responsibility of lay-witnessing is im- 
perative in New Testament evangelism, we have explored possible ways of assisting 
our church leaders in their effort to arouse an obedient and effective response on 
the part of all our people to this mandate of Christ. 

An attempt was made in February with good response to organize a Car Caravan 
of laymen from our churches in attendance at the Tuesday evening session of 
the state Conference on Evangelism in Greensboro. 

Plans are being completed in preparation for a Bible and Lay-Witness Confer- 



44 



Twenty-Second Annual Session 



ence to be held on March eight and nine, 1971. This conference, aimed at the layman, 
will offer sound Bible instruction and practical training in witnessing . 

In looking toward the spring conference, A Church Evangelism Rally has been 
scheduled to be held at Yates Church on Monday evening, November thirty. Dr. 
Thomas L. Neely of S. C. will speak at this rally and bring the Bible message in the 
March 1971 conference. At this rally also will be shown the color movie, "Like a 
Mighty Army," introducing the Lay Evangelism Training Ministry of the Coral 
Ridge Presbyterian Church, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. 

The twenty-fifth statewide Evangelism Conference will be held at War Memorial 
Auditorium and Greensboro Coliseum on February one and two, 1971. 

Your Committee urgently requests our people to give priority to prayer and 
to promote full participation in local church, associational and area-wide evangelism 
programs and events. 

Joseph W. Kemp, in a presidential address to the Baptist Union of New Zealand, 
said: "We are summoned to evangelism; for revival we are cast upon the sovereign 
grace of God." Mendel Taylor in his book, Exploring Evangelism, wrote: "When 
Christians fail to evangelize, the very existence of the church is threatened. 
Evangelism is indispensable in the life of the church."

Julian M. Motley. Chairman 



REPORT OF 

"THE MEMBERSHIP PRACTICES STUDY COMMITTEE 
OF THE YATES BAPTIST ASSOCIATION" 

The Membership Practices Study Committee has sought to discharge its respon- 
sibility with objectivity and with spiritual sensitivity. This report includes the com- 
mittee's method and basis of procedure, its conclusions, and its recommendations. 
A summary of the questionnaire submitted to the churches may be found under 
separate cover. 

1 . A REVIEW OF THE ASSOCIATIONAL ACTION 

In early 1969 the Watts Street Baptist Church voted to accept members "by 
transfer of letter from another Christian church giving evidence of baptism by im- 
mersion or by another mode, if that baptism is meaningful to the candidate, upon 
the condition that all membership requirements, including confirmation, of the 
denomination from which he comes have been fully satisfied." 

At the 1969 Annual Meeting of the Yates Baptist Association a motion was made 
that the Association "go on record as reaffirming our commitment to the scriptural 
and historical mode of baptism by immersion, and in stating our opposition to a 
membership policy among our churches that will accept any members without im- 
mersion, and that we respectfully request the Watts Street Church to reconsider 
their action in this regard." A substitute motion was made to place the Watts 
Street Church under "watchcare . . . while the church engages itself in a careful 
re-examination of the matter." After much debate, the substitute motion was de- 
feated, and in relation to the original motion the Association voted to "refer the 
question of membership in the churches of this association to the Associational 
Board; that we request the Board to study the practices of all the churches in 
the Association; and that the Board make appropriate report." The Board appointed 
a Membership Practices Study Committee consisting of two laymen, two pastors, 
and an educational director: Bruce Little, Chairm?n; Bill Brogden, Aaron Conn, 
B. E. White, Jr., and Robert Winecoff. The moderator at the Board Meeting in- 



Yates Baptist Association

structed the committee "to deal with the substance of the original motion and its 
referral and bring back its conclusion to this Board." 

2. DIFFICULTY IN DETERMINING OUR ASSIGNMENT 

The Membership Practices Study Committee had considerable difficulty in de- 
termining its assignment and exactly what it was to do. Those who made major 
motions in the debate at the Annual Meeting were interviewed with the exception 
of one man who had moved out of the area. After this, the Committee determined 
that it should study the whole scope of church membership and not just the im- 
mersion question. It was also decided to prepare a survey form to determine the 
membership practices of the churches, to request "each pastor ... to answer this 
questionnaire with the help of his church clerk, deacon chairman, and representatives 
to the Associational Board, so that the answers will reflect the practices of the 
church and not any personal opinions," and to publish and make available to the 
Board an anonymous compilation of this study before the 1970 Annual Meeting. 
The committee further decided to make a definite recommendation to the Association 
based on its study of the survey reports. 

3. THE PROBLEM OF DEFINING CHURCH MEMBERSHIP 

For both defining the nature of church membership and preparing the ques- 
tionnaire the committee sought to determine: Who is a member of a Baptist church? 
When is a person a member? What makes him a member? This may seem to be an 
oversimplification of the obvious, but it is not since different churches receive mem- 
bers under different arrangements. Most of our Baptist churches receive members 
through baptism and transfer of membership. Many have additional requirements. 
Some others receive people in some kind of watchcare relationship, associate mem- 
bership, or what is commonly called open membership — receiving unimmersed Chris- 
tians as full members of the church. Are these people members of the church or not? 
We felt that knowing if the membership of these persons was retained elsewhere, if 
they were reported as members to the Association, if they could vote or hold church 
office, and if they could be granted letters — all this would help to determine an answer 
to these perplexing questions. 

4. THE NEW TESTAMENT AS A SOURCE OF AUTHORITY 

In studying the nature of church membership, we turned first of all to the New 
Testament as the source of our authority, for it is our guide for faith and practice. 
However, we did not find in the New Testament any specific information about 
watchcare, associate membership, open membership, or transfer of membership. In 
fact, there were no membership rolls, church letters, or associational reports listing 
church membership. In the New Testament church there were no classifications of 
church membership such as watchcare, associate, or open membership. All members 
were equal in status. 

We further found that there was only one baptism — believers' baptism by im- 
mersion. The time for baptism was at the beginning of the Christian life. Infant 
baptism or the baptism of believers by a mode other than immersion was unknown. 
Since there were also no denominations, there was therefore no problem about how 
to receive a person into a Baptist church who had been baptized as an infant or as a 
believer by some mode other than immersion. The New Testament teaches baptism 
by immersion as a salvation symbol more than it does as an act of entrance into the 
church which is only implied. Since this is so, should a Baptist church require candi- 
dates for membership who have been Christians for many years and who have 
confirmed their infant baptism, to undergo immersion, which properly belongs at 
the beginning of the Christian life? Should a believer who was baptized by some 
mode other than immersion at the time of his profession of faith be required to be 



46 



Twenty-Second Annual Session 



immersed? The New Testament is silent on those questions because no such prob- 
lems had yet arisen. 

5. THE HISTORIC PRACTICES OF BAPTISTS 

Next we turned to Baptist history. When the Baptist movement began in England 
in the first part of the seventeenth century, our forefathers stressed believers' bap- 
tism. Many of the early Baptists had been Christians for many years, but they wanted 
to be baptized as a symbol of their faith. They rejected infant baptism as invalid 
for them because it was before their faith instead of after it. However, they were 
baptized by affusion — pouring — instead of immersion. Around 1644 Baptists first 
began to immerse because they considered it the proper New Testament method. All 
along the emphasis has been on the meaning of baptism rather than the mode, on 
spiritual significance rather than the physical form. Historically, the accent has been 
on believers' baptism with immersion as the most adequate symbol of faith. Yet 
as far back as the early days of the Baptist movement John Bunyan advocated open 
membership in Baptist churches. Some Baptist churches in England have practiced 
open membership for over two hundred years. In the main, however. Baptists have 
immersed those who have been baptized as infants who have sought membership 
in Baptist churches, particularly in our country and the South. 

6. THE CURRENT PRACTICES OF BAPTISTS 

The committee also sought to find out how widespread the practice of open 
membership currently is among Baptists. In an address to the 1965 Baptist World 
Alliance, G. R. Beasley-Murray stated that "most Baptists outside the U.S.A. have no 
hesitation in recognizing the validity of other churches' baptism when it is applied 
to those who confess their faith." A Baptist Manual of Faith and Practice published 
by the American Baptist Convention discusses the case for and against open mem- 
bership and concludes that "individual churches must choose." In a survey of 
Superintendents of Missions in North Carolina to the question, "Does your as- 
sociation have a church or churches that individuals may join under some circum- 
stances without being immersed?" eight answered affirmatively. 

Open membership has been the subject of controversy in the Mecklenburg As- 
sociation in North Carolina which resulted in three churches no longer being af- 
filiated with that association. In 1960 after much controversy our own association 
rejected the application of the Binkley Memorial Baptist Church because of its 
membership practices. These four churches, however, are still affiliated with the 
Baptist State Convention, and the Southern Baptist Convention. 

7. THE CONSTITUTION OF OUR ASSOCIATION 

We also carefully examined the Constitution of our Association to determine the 
relationship of the churches to the Association. We found a constitutional conflict 
in that the Association is officially composed of messengers from the churches 
as well as the association officers and associational board members, but it operates 
as though it were composed of churches. The Association by two-thirds vote may 
"withdraw fellowship from any church that shall willfully depart from orthodox 
principles of the Christian religion as taught in the Bible and as believed by Bap- 
tists." However, there is no satisfactory definition to which we can turn to clarify 
what are orthodox principles, nor is there complete agreement among Baptists as to 
what they believe about some things. 

According to the Constitution the Association is organized on the basis of co- 
operating in the cause of missions and ministry, for its purpose "shall be to devise, 
recommend, and promote measures for increasing the harmony and spiritual powers 
of the cooperating churches, to assist in developing and directing their energies, re- 
sources, and gifts in advancing the Redeemer's Kingdom, and to cooperate with the 



Yates Baptist Association 



47 



Baptist State Convention of North Carolina and the Southern Baptist Convention in 
all religious, educational, missionary, Sunday School, Training Union, Brotherhood, 
Music, Woman's Missionary Union, and other work fostered by said conventions." 

8. THINGS TO NOTICE IN THE QUESTIONNAIRE SURVEY 

As directed by the Association, we undertook to survey the membership practices 
of all our churches. The results of our questionnaire have been anonymously com- 
piled and published under separate cover. We have carefully studied the responses of 
37 churches and request you to note the results and consider some of the implications. 

A. Note that every one of our churches has as the basis for membership a pro- 
fession of faith in Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord and require all new converts 
to be baptized by immersion unless hindered by some providential reason. 

B. Note that none of our churches with elect unimmersed members as messengers, 
or grant them letters to other Baptist churches without notation. 

C. Note that a number of our churches do not have a written constitution or 
policy statement in relation to membership policy. 

D. Note that some of our churches require a valid immersion to be administered 
by an ordained minister. Consider the fact that in the New Testament Deacon Phillip 
baptized the eunuch. 

E. Note the varying concepts of what makes an immersion valid and the dif- 
ference in practice in accepting or rejecting alien immersion. Consider the problem 
caused by these practices in transferring church letters. 

F. Note the number of churches which have baptized pre-school children, a 
practice which some churches would question as closely akin to infant baptism. 

G. Note the number of churches that will allow an unimmersed Christian to 
exercise a ministry in the church without being a member. 

H. Note the number of churches that would deny in theory or practice member- 
ship to anyone because of his race. Consider Galations 3: 27-28: "For as many of 
you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor 
Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female; for ye are one 
in Christ Jesus." 

I. Note the difference in practice in receiving and granting church letters to 
churches of other denominations. Consider that apparently in some of our churches 
there is no way to get off the roll but to die or join another Baptist church. 

J. Note the number of churches that do not require detailed instruction as to 
the symbolic meaning of baptism. 

K. Note that some churches report that in the past they have made some kind of 
exception about membership requirements. 

9. SOME QUESTIONS WE HAVE NOT ANSWERED 

There have been a number of questions to arise in our discussion with which 
we would like to acquaint the churches and request them to further discuss and 
study: 

A. What makes a baptism valid? The person administering the baptism? The 
way a person is baptized? The faith of the person being baptized? 

B. Are people who have been baptized as infants and who later confirm their 
baptism to be considered as not having been baptized in any sense? Is a believer's 
baptism by affusion a valid baptism? 

C. If we accept other churches as true Christian churches should we receive and 
grant letters of transfer to and from them? 

D. Is an association composed of churches or of messengers? Are churches mem- 
bers of an association? 

E. Should a person who has been a Christian many years and who accepts his 



48 



Twenty-Second Annual Session 



baptism as valid be asked to undergo immersion? On the other hand, why would a 
person want to be a Baptist if he is not willing to be immersed? 

F. If a church rejects an immersed Christian for membership, or a new convert 
who requests baptism, solely because of the color of his skin, what should the re- 
action of the Association be? 

G. Are the ethical commands of Jesus on the same level as his command to im- 
merse? Is there a difference in that which is form and that which is faith in action 
in the church's understanding of its mission? 

H. Is a difference in local church membership practices a valid reason for 
dividing the Association and failing to do together what we need to do? 

10. DIFFICULTIES IN REACHING CONCLUSIONS 

It should be obvious that this committee has had a great deal of difficulty m 
reaching any conclusions. We have met fifteen times over a period of eight months. 
Our seven-page questionnaire, in which we tried to cover the wide variety of mem- 
bership practices among Baptists about which we knew, was returned to us not only 
with indications of many differences in practice but also with 185 exceptions or 
comments about our questions written on the questionnaire itself. 

We have further discovered that the controversy over membership practices in- 
volves a conflict in some important Baptist principles. The Bible and Baptists teach 
believers' baptism by immersion. But Baptists also strongly believe in soul freedom — 
the right of the individual and the church to believe and act as conscience and the 
Holy Spirit lead. Baptists believe also in the competency of the individual and the 
church to interpret God's word in the Scriptures. What shall we do about membership 
practices when some appeal to conscience and Scripture as their source of authority? 
Baptists are aware that we cannot dictate to any autonomous church anything con- 
cerning its membership practices no matter how much we may disapprove of them. 
Nor can Baptists draw up a standard, or creed, or even a confession of faith, and 
ask the churches to subscribe to it. 

One of the things we have learned is that relatively few unimmersed Christians 
have been received into our churches. Compared with our 26,941 members they are 
few indeed. All are aware that we have been an association which has had unim- 
mersed Christians in the membership of its churches for a year and a half. How- 
ever, the fact is we have been an association which has had unimmersed Christians 
in the membership of its churches for many years. The membership practices of 
some our churches have not been generally known until now. 

We are also keenly conscious of the larger scope of this discussion because it 
involves the whole denomination. This matter will increasingly become a problem 
in the South, and what we do may well have some influence on what other associa- 
tions may do. 

The questionnaire made obvious the variety of membership practices among the 
churches of our association. If the Association were to withdraw fellowship from 
churches on the basis of the original motion before it which calls for our disap- 
proval of any church "that would accept any members without immersion" we find 
the following number of churches in question in receiving unimmersed persons: 

one church which practices open membership 

one church which receives associate members 

one church which receives under permanent watchcare (we have had difficulty 
in determining whether unimmersed Christians received by four other 
churches under watchcare were accepted in a temporary or permanent rela- 
tionship) 

five churches which have received elderly or infirm persons who were unable to 
be immersed and have added them to the church roll or reported them to the 
Association as members.

From the variety of responses to the questionnaire we hope that you can under- 
stand that it has been with the greatest difficulty that we have been able to reach any 
decision at all. 

We call upon the Yates Baptist Association: 

CONCLUSIONS WHICH WE HAVE REACHED 

1. to reaffirm its commitment to the scriptural and historical tradition of believers' 
baptism by immersion as a symbol of death, burial, and resurrection. 

2. to restudy and revise its constitution so that there may be consistency in out- 
lining whether the Association is composed of messengers or churches. 

3. to acknowledge that since there is such a great variety of membership prac- 
tices in the churches that the basis of membership in the churches not be considered 
in formulating the basis of membership in the Association. 

4. to begin again the greatly needed study of how we can work together as an 
association for the cause of Christ in city and metropolitan missions. 

5. to join together in the spirit of Christian unity acknowledging that we are Bap- 
tists and brethren despite our differences, and to pledge anew our respect for each 
other's convictions. 

We admonish the churches of the Yates Baptist Association: 

1. to continue to baptize by immersion all new converts and to define the rela- 
tionship to the church of those candidates for baptism who are unable for some 
reason to be immersed. 

2. to instruct carefully every baptismal candidate as to the symbolic meaning of 
baptism, and to stress the meaning as well as the mode in accordance with the 
New Testament teaching. 

3. to examine carefully all candidates for membership from other denomina- 
tions as to their conversion experience, to explain to them what Baptists believe 
and why, and to encourage them to be baptized by immersion as a confession of 
their faith. 

4. to require any candidates for membership from other denominations who seek 
to be related to a church by transfer through watchcare, associate membership, or 
open membership practices to have confirmed their baptism in a confession of faith 
before a church of the denomination from which they come. 

5. to note on church letters transferring membership to another Baptist church 
that the person named has not been immersed so as to inform any sister church.

REPORT OF GAMP COMMITTEE 

The following document entitled "Condensed History and Status Report Yates 
Association Camp — May 1970" was prepared by the Association Camp Committee 
for the use of the Special Camp Committee. This special committee was authorized 
at the 1969 Annual Meeting of the Yates Baptist Association. Because of a wide- 
spread interest in this area of our associational activity and because it accurately 
reflects the aims and intentions of the present Camp Committee, we offer the same 
as a part of our annual report: 



CONDENSED HISTORY AND STATUS REPORT 
YATES ASSOCIATION CAMP— MAY 1970 

The Yates Baptist Association at its annual meeting on October 26, 1954, voted 
to establish a campgrounds for the use of the association and its agencies. Fifteen 
months later in January 1956, the Associational Board voted to purchase 55.6 
acres of land on the Wake Forest Highway in Wake County about one mile beyond 
the Durham County line. 

In 1956 and 1957 some interior roads were built, a fish pond was constructed 
and stocked and a 1200 square foot open shelter was built. Tables and benches, 
an outdoor furnace and outside dry toilets were also provided. 

A caretaker's home was built in 1960 and in 1961 a professional planner was 
engaged to prepare a master plan for development of the entire camp area. 

In 1963 more roads were built, parking areas were cleared, tents were purchased, 
charcoal grilles and picnic tables were installed and some play equipment was pur- 
chased. 

The land area of the camp was increased to 83 acres with the purchase of 27.4 
additional acres in 1964. Also during this year a ball field was cleared. 

Much development occurred during 1965. A lodge was finished and dedicated, 
a full time caretaker was employed and restrooms were provided in the tenting area, 

A cold water bath house with showers for the tent area and an outdoor chapel 
were added in 1968. 

From early in its history the camp suffered from an inadequate water supply. 
During the years at least six different wells were drilled in an effort to alleviate this 
problem. Only in 1969 d'd these efforts meet with reasonable success. The sixth well 
provides a flow of some seven gallons per minute. The other producing wells afford 
some three gallons per minute. So at long last the water problem seems to be re- 
solved. With a good storage facility the ten gallons per minute will allow the camp- 
grounds to be utilized to its fullest potential. 

Because of the uncertainty of the water supply, the master plan which was com- 
menced in 1961 was never fully completed. With this matter apparently solved, the 
master plan has now been completed and awaits the approval of the association and 
adequate funding. 

The initial funds for the purchase of land for the camp site came from the mem- 



Yates Baptist Association 



55 



ber churches on a pro rata basis. In addition, individual gifts were accepted for 
early development. 

The caretaker's home was constructed in 1960 by borrowing from a local savings 
and loan association. 

From 1954 till 1963 there was no effective plan for the financial support of the 
development of the facility. A plan known as the "quarter per quarter" campaign 
was advanced and adopted in 1963 which called on all members of the member 
churches of the association to give at the rate of $1.00 per year. This plan met 
with moderate success and provided about $6,000 per year for campgrounds pur- 
poses. This sum afforded some funds for capital expansion. On the basis of the 
response to this program of finance, the Association agreed in 1964 to raise money 
for this purpose by issuing bonds. 

All the monies from this issue have long been expended, the principal results 
of the use of these monies are the lodge building and several almost useless holes 
in the ground, mute evidences of the several efforts to satisfy the need for an ade- 
quate water supply. 

From inception to 1969 the camp operated on a budget separate and apart from 
the regular budget of the association. Commencing with the 1970 budget the affairs 
of the camp have been assimilated into the regular associational budget and agree- 
ment has been made to discontinue the "quarter per quarter" campaign. 

The 1970 Budget affords $1,680 for a caretaker, $2,500 for maintenance, $9,300 
interest and debt retirement, and no funds for capital improvements. 

The mortgage on the caretaker's home is scheduled for retirement in March 1975. 
Monthly payments on this account are at the rate of $125 per month. 

The nominal amount of $6,300 per year is required for retirement of the bonds 
which were issued in 1964. This sum includes principal and interest and the final 
payment of these obligations is scheduled for September 1979. 

In view of these obligations good judgment would seem to dictate the following 
financial policy: (1) conduct principally a holding operation, providing services 
at about the existing level until 1976 or 1977. The $125 per month for the care- 
taker's home mortgage will have been discharged in early 1975. At that time the 
$125 per month can be diverted to bond retirement. By mid 1977 debt should stand 
at less than $12,000. 

(2) Anticipate borrowing $75,000 to $80,000 in mid 1977 to discharge the then 
existing debts, using the remainder to complete as much as possible of the items then 
remaining of the master plan. 

(3) Conduct "low key" campaign among churches and individuals to accomplish 
several of the most pressing needs of the camp commencing in 1970. 

(4) Some "fee for use" system should be devised and put into effect to afford 
some revenue. This revenue would be used to offset some of the cost of maintenance. 
It is not anticipated that proceeds from this source would ever be sufficient to defray 
the cost of operation. As long as the camp is in existence, some funds will be needed 
from the regular associational budget to keep the camp in operation. 

It must be reported that the campgrounds will be considerably diminished with 
the development of the Neuse River basin. Such land as we lose will be on a reim- 
bursed basis. There is a most urgent need to replace this land beforehand. This is 
made imperative by reason that the land absolutely cannot be replaced after such 
loss is incurred. 

Negotiations are under way for the acquisition of the land mentioned above. 
When the negotiations are complete, a report and recommendation will follow. 

With the completion of the master plan the Association should have an excellent 
facility. Though relatively small in size, it should afford to the Association- and its 
member churches a very high quality facility. In future years the availability of 



56 



Twenty-Second Annual Session 



such a camp could be a most valuable asset in the efforts of the Association 
to minister to its people. 

In the meantime it would seem imperative that all concerned persons and com- 
mittees should intensify efforts to put to the most effective use the camp as it is now 
developed. The Association should endeavor to maintain experienced and knowl- 
edgeable persons on committee assignment. From this date till complete develop- 
ment is accomplished, those who serve in this area of associational activity should 
diligently be working on plans and programs which it expects to implement at that 
time. All the while giving due attention to the here and now as well as the short 
range operations. 

In recent months it has been suggested that the Yates Baptist Association might 
have made serious error when it attempted to engage in a camp operation. It 
would appear at this moment that the move was wise indeed, perhaps even visionary. 
People are of a certainty going to use facilities such as this, in fact, the demand for 
such campgrounds as this will greatly expand in the near future. 

If the Association expects to provide just another campground for just some 
more people who want to camp, then no good case can be made for its retention. 
It does seem reasonable and feasible for the Association to provide a spiritually 
oriented camp where the quality of the experience might be measurd by the nature 
of the gathering than by the accommodations. In such a light one must ask the ques- 
tion, "Can we afford not to provide such an atmosphere for our people?" By the 
year 1985 this facility can in all probability be offering accommodations on a year- 
round basis for as many as 200 persons per day. 

In conclusion it would seem that all concerned must run the race with patience. 
All have perhaps been guilty of wanting instant success. Many have been disappointed 
because of the burdensome problems which have come to their attention and the 
endless need for attention and support. Truly it would have been nice if all could 
have gone well. It just didn't work out that way. There will be other trials and 
tribulations along the way. If there is no resolution, if there is no commitment, if 
there is no faith or vision in what this project might mean in the work of our 
Christian churches, then the entire idea should be abandoned and at once. 

When the camp lodge was dedicated in October 10, 1965, Mrs. Charles A. Mad- 
dry in her address there said, "Time spent in planning, working, and praying, to 
say nothing of the thousands of dollars invested in these grounds, will be a loss to 
the kingdom of God unless training and missionary education are at the heart of 
activities experienced here." 

From the Baptist State Convention Newsletter of May 1970, "Surveys made among 
pastors and missionaries indicate that more initial responses are made to God's call 
to vocational Christian service in camps and assemblies than from any other single 
force." 

Who says "Quit"? 

As a supplement to the above document we further report the following: 
On June 30, 1970, after long negotiations the Yates Baptist Association was able 
to obtain an option on 13 acres of land immediately adjoining the Association camp- 
grounds. This land generally lies to the North and East of the property now owned 
by the Association. This option is to expire on November 1, 1970, unless exercised. 
The total purchase price of $8,000 is payable on the following terms: 

$2,500 on or before November 1, 1970 

$2,000 " " " November 1, 1971 

$1,800 " " " November 1, 1972 

$1,700 " " " November 1, 1973 

Unpaid balances would be subject to an annual intc^est rate of 6% and there would 
be no penalty for prepayment of any installment. 



Yates Baptist Association 



57 



Believing that the Association has no funds at this time for this purpose, yet de- 
siring to retain an option position on this 13 acres, your Camp Committee has ar- 
ranged with a friend of the Association to exercise this option. 

If it meets with the approval of this assembly, this friend of the Association does 
agree to hold in his possession this same tract of land and at any time prior to 
January 1, 1975, to convey the same to the Association for the exact amount of 
monies expended, i.e., principal, interest, taxes, and legal expenses, plus interest at 
the rate of 6% per annum. 

The above agreement is subject only to the condition that in the event any portion 
of this land is taken by any government or its agency, the transfer price of the re- 
maining land would be reduced by the amount of the proceeds of such a transaction.

Progress Report 

YOUTH AND FAMILY SERVICES 

During the past year I feel that "The Youth and Family Services" Department 
of our Yates Baptist Association has made some very significant progress in many 
areas of Christian Social Ministries. The following report will be the listing and 
discussion of these programs and also some anticipated programs for the future. 

First, I have begun what I feel is a most significant program at the Guess Road 
Prison Camp. This is where I take a man with me one Thursday evening a month 
to talk with the inmates who are being released the following month. In these con- 
versations we find out if possible where they are going when released, whom they will 
contact, if they have a job, and if they have a church home among other things. 
If they live outside of Durham, I will write a letter to whomever they suggest giving 
them the above information. If they live in Durham and the person they suggest to be 
contacted has a phone, I will call for them. I am pleased to report that several have 
jobs as a result of these contacts. Many of them got their old jobs back. 

Second, we have provided training opportunities for the members of our churches. 
On May 7, 1970, we had a Seminar on "Youth," the theme of which was 'The 
Struggle of Growing Up." The resource personnel for this Seminar were: 1) Chap- 
lain Maurice Briggs, School of Pastoral Care in Winston-Salem; 2) Alvis Whitted, 
Principal, C. A. Dillon School of Correction, Butner, N. C.; 3) Dr. Sherrill Stevens, 
Chairman, Christian Social Ministries Committee; 4) Rev. J. Edwin Bullock, Secre- 
tary, Brotherhood Department of the Baptist State Convention; 5) Dr. George Mad- 
dox, Clinical Sociologist of Duke University; 6) Mrs. James P. Morgan, Clinical 
Psychologist for the State Department of Social Services (Children's Division). 

Third, an increasingly close relationship has been developed with the Durham 
County Community Mental Health Center. With increasing frequency we are giving 
and receiving referrals of persons who are in need of better mental health or who are 
in crisis situations. 

Fourth, we are continually trying to improve the follow-up program for people 
who are coming out of the John Umstead Hospital, Durham Unit, and the Alcoholic 
Rehabilitation Center in Butner. We are doing much of this through the Vocational 
Rehabilitation worker at the Alcoholic Rehabilitation Center at Butner and also 
through the local Department of Social Services. 

Fifth, with increasing frequency I am having opportunities for personal counseling 
sessions in the office with alcoholics, prisoners and their families. The sources from 
which they are coming are social agencies and institutions, churches, and on their 
own.

Twenty-Second Annual Session 



Sixth, I have had opportunities to speak in forty-three of our churches in the 
Yates Baptist Association. I also have had many opportunities to speak to agencies, 
institutions, A. A, groups, and civic clubs in the past year. 

Finally, I have had several opportunities to go into other associations and other 
states to represent and speak on behalf of our State Convention and Home Mission 
Board. One such opportunity was going to an underprivileged Boys' Camp in Mary- 
land last summer as Camp Missionary for the Home Mission Board. And the high- 
light of the week was that on two occasions we gave the boys an opportunity to 
make public their profession of faith in Christ and to rededicate their lives to Him. 
Out of a hundred boys, at least two-thirds of them made some kind of commitment 
to Christ that week. What made this even more significant was that the Camp Di- 
rector told me that the most of these boys did not know who their father was and 
many did not know either parent. I believe this kind of ministry could be effectively 
undertaken at our Yates Association Camp. 

In the future we anticipate a very close working relationship with the Governor's 
Study Committee of North Carolina's Penal System, Attorney Ralph Strayhorn, 
Chairman, Out of this relationship we hope to discover more concrete ways in which 
we as an Association can better work with prison releasees, both adult and youth 
offenders. 

In the future we are looking forward to working more closely with our Depart- 
ment of Social Services (Welfare Department) in all the ways in which we have 
been working and also in receiving names and addresses of people who cannot read 
and would like to learn. We hope also to develop with them a better system of re- 
ferring to churches some of the people in need and crisis situations for more ex- 
tended ministry both physically and spiritually. 

During the coming year our plans are to develop programs in the area o'f work 
with "one-parent families," many of which are alcohol and crime related. We shall 
continue the programs already underway in other areas and try to implement a 
planned program of work with non-readers. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Boyce G. Kimball, Director 



REPORT OF ASSOGIATIONAL BOARD 

The Association has conducted its business in five meetings of the Associational 
Board. The board meetings were held at Mt. Moriah, November 18, 1969; Cheek 
Heights, February 10, 1970; Carrboro, May 12, 1970; Hope Valley, September 8, 
1970; and Olive Branch, October 13, 1970. 

Included among the actions taken by the board are the following highly 
significant ones: 

1. The Moderator appointed the personnel of two committees authorized at the 
Annual Meeting of 1969. Both committees were understood to be special and would 
be dissolved upon completion of their final reports: 

a. The Camp Study Committee: 

Rev. Ray Hodge, Chairman; Rev. David Osborne, Burke Hobgood, Ellis 
Thomas, and Stewart Rigsbee 

b. The Church Membership Practices Committee: 

Bruce Little, Chairman, Rev. Robert Winecoff, Rev. B. E. White, Jr., Rev. 
Bill Brogden, and Aaron Conn. 

2. Rev. Crate Jones, Secretary of the City and Metropolitan Study Committee 
presented a recommendation from that committee that it remain dormant until 
reactivated by its chairman. Rev. Russell Barbee. This motion was approved. 



Yates Baptist Association 



59 



3. Rev. Leon Addleton, Chairman of the Committee on Committees, recom- 
mended the following members for the Youth Council Advisory Committee and 
moved their election: David Peach, Chairman; Rev. Malcolm Cadd, Co-Chairman; 
Jim Staples; Al Childress; Steve Ackerman; Miss Nannie Mae Herndon; and Mrs. 
Martin Rigsbee. This committee was approved. 

4. In January the Association officially entered into a cooperative missions min- 
istry with the State Convention and the Home Mission Board through the work of 
Boyce Kimball, our Director of Youth and Family Services. 

5. Rev. Vernon McDaniel moved that "the Constitution Committee be advised 
to bring recommendations to the Association as to the feasibility of changing the 
method of budget presentation to include that of a concrete budget based on 
realistic expenditures over previous years and that the associational fiscal year be 
altered as needed." This motion was approved. 

6. A motion was approved that "the week of April 16-21, 1972, be adopted as 
the time for our next Association World Mission Conference (School of Missions)." 

7. It was voted to have a Stewardship Development Program and correlate it 
with the annual Week of Prayer for Associational Missions, August 23-30, with 
lay-speakers enlisted, instructed and offered to the churches. The moderator was 
asked to appoint a committee of five to carry out this project. He appointed Rev. 
Everette Smith, Chairman; Lloyd Senter; Curtis Crutchfield, Jr.; Buck Dean; George 
Parks; J. William Bonner. 

8. The following were selected by the Board as candidates for the State General 
Board: 1. Coy Yates; 2. Downey Booth; 3. Rev. Ray Hodge; 4. Rev. B. E. White, Jr. 

9. Mr. Hurley Mulkey, Chairman of the Finance Committee, presented a pro- 
posed budget calling for expenditure of $62,629 as goals for the calendar year 1971. 
This was approved for presentation to the Annual Meeting. 

10. Rev. Ray Hodge, Chairman of the Camp Study Committee, brought a report 
of the scope and work of the committee. The report revealed the extent of use of 
the camp, financial contributions made to the camp, projected plans for the camp, 
and the lack of any stated purpose for a camp in Yates Association. 

Noting that the regular Camp Committee had now formulated specific plans for 
completion of the camp, and that the regular committee would bring a detailed re- 
port of their plans to the Annual Meeting, the special Study Committee made two 
recommendations: (1) that the regular Camp Committee be asked to formulate a 
formal statement of purpose for a Yates Association Camp; (2) that the churches 
be informed of the Camp Committee's report, so as to be prepared to hear the report 
and to express the will of the churches for the continuation and support of the camp 
or discontinuation of it. 

11. The report of the Special Membership Practices Study Committee was sub- 
mitted to the board. The report contained a summary of the results of a survey 
of the membership practices of 37 of the churches in the Yates Association. In addi- 
tion these included 10 conclusions that the committee made on the basis of their 
study. Two recommendations were made: (1) that no further action be taken rel- 
ative to the relationship of Watts Street Church to the Association or any other 
church insofar as its membership practices are concerned. That all churches con- 
tinue to do their God-appointed tasks in our associational territory. (2) that this re- 
port with its recommendations be presented to the 1970 Annual Meeting on Tues- 
day afternoon for appropriate action. 

A substitute motion was made by Ray Hodge, that the Associational Board 
recommend the Study Committee for its excellent work and that the report of the 
committee be passed on to the Annual Assn. Meeting for its consideration, without 
any recommendation from the Board. 

As a perusal of the above actions reveals, much that was undertaken during the 



60 



Twenty-Second Annual Session 



year remains yet unresolved. It is hoped that the Annual Meeting will produce such 
resolution in a spirit of concern, unity consistent with adherence to truth and love 
expressed by respect for the views of one another, and a determination to press for- 
ward with our strategy for fulfilling the Great Commission in our part of the world 
insofar as that strategy depends upon the work of the Yates Baptist Association. 

Reports from the following committees should be considered as an addenda 
to this official associational board report: Christian Life, Deacons, Fellowship, In- 
stitution, Libraries, Non-Evangelicals, Ordinations, Student Work, and Stewardship 
Development. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Ned L. Mathews, Moderator 



REPORT OF CHRISTIAN LIFE COMMITTEE 

The work of the Christian Life Committee during the past year has been done 
individually or within individual churches. The annual seminar sponsored by the 
committee in recent years was not held during 1970 because of budgetary considera- 
tions. These programs have dealt especially with problems connected with race or 
poverty, and often in collaboration with other associations affiliated with the Gen- 
eral Baptist Convention. 

We have been aware, however, that the development of attitudes and the imple- 
mentation of activities which will aid in solution to our difficulties must be accom- 
plished through individual churches and action groups. There is some indication of 
progress at this point, but there is also clear evidence that the progress is neither ade- 
quate nor general. 

On the negative side, for example, the survey of church membership practices 
shows that only 29 churches (of the 37 responding) are even theoretically open 
to confessing Christians of whatever race. Of these 29, correspondents of 17 churches 
were in grave doubt that Chr
